Disarmament and exploitation have been exceedingly separate acts achieved through distinct organizational entities created for these particular reasons. The umbrella plan below which the disarmament of the Luftwaffe was once applied used to be Operation Eclipse. Eclipse took over the place Overlord left off, Overlord having been the plan which supplied for the invasion of Europe as much as the defeat of the enemy, whereas Eclipse coated the disarmament and everlasting army neutralization of Nazi Germany. For American airmen tasked to take advantage of the aeronautical secrets and techniques of the 3rd Reich, Operation Lusty supplied the authority, path, and idea of operation. those teams, the disarmers and the exploiters,worked hand in glove, one feeding the opposite, and via doing so ensured every one other’s good fortune. even supposing the method because it spread out used to be whatever yet orderly, they succeeded of their respective projects past anyone’s expectancies.

Example text

Critical research was suspended, engineers drafted, and the focus remained on producing more of the old, rather than expending limited resources on new, unproven science. But wars seldom are as brief as men would have them; nor is a war’s course ever clearly discernible. Colonel Raymond E. Toliver, in his book Fighter General: The Life of Adolf Galland, made the point of missed opportunities quite clearly. “Four months prior to the Bader incident [Bader was a colorful and legless British fighter pilot shot down over the Pas de Calais in August ], an aircraft took off from the Heinkel factory that demonstrated Germany’s vast technical lead in fighter development.

The act of shooting a jet pilot in his chute was not all that unusual, although it was distasteful to many airmen. Colonel Raymond E. Toliver described Galland’s actions to save his own life when his Me- was damaged on April , , days before war’s end. “His stricken Me- was still flying, and he did not want to risk parachuting and landing as a corpse. ” Chuck Yeager wrote, “Early in my tour, I heard that one of the guys had seen a  strafe an American bomber crew in their chutes.

Sitting on the tankers were fighter planes. We didn’t see any P-s, but we saw lots of P-s and P-s. When we got to England, we second lieutenants were met by several ‘bird colonels,’ commanders of P- fighter outfits. Some of us thought this kind of odd and we trotted over to the intelligence section to take a look at some mission summaries for different types of combat aircraft. What fell out of it for me was that for every P- lost, they lost two P-s, in round numbers, that is. And for every P- they lost two P-s.
