The Memoirs of Field Marshal Kesselring, Kesselring, Albert - Field Marshal - translated By Lynton Hudson
14 Kesselring, Albert - Field Marshal - translated By Lynton Hudson The Memoirs of Field Marshal Kesselring
London William Kimber 1954 Reprint Hardcover Very Good Very Good Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Unclipped dustwrapper. No marks or inscriptions. Gold lettering to spine. Extensively illustrated. No living German carried more responsibility during the Second World War than Field Marshal Kesselring. Originally an army officer, he transferred to the Luftwaffe in 1935. Second only to Goering in the Luftwaffe, he commanded an Air Fleet in the invasion of France and in the Battle of Britain. In 1941 he was appointed commander-in-chief south and directed the air fleet cooperating with the Afrika Corps in the Desert Campaign, and he was often personally in the midst of the fighting. As commander-in-chief in Italy in 1943 and 1944 all German forces in this sphere were under his control. After the failure of the Ardennes's offensive he was called upon to replace Von Rundstedt as commander-in-chief of the West. His conviction for war crimes created widespread controversy - supporters among his former enemies declaring that but for Kesselring's conduct Italy would have been devastated. Released in the autumn of 1952, he has now written his memoirs. This is the first, and perhaps the last, autobiography to be written by a foremost military leader of the Third Reich. Nice and clean internally and externally.
