Angriffsgruppe schultheiss. Deployment of Luftwaffe from the Slovak airports against Poland in September 1939
Languages of publication
The author of the published material study tried to reconstruct the operation of German combat units from the Slovak airports in September 1939 against Poland and to partially clarify the share of Slovak fighters accompanying German bombers (under the command of colonel Schultheiss) based on the study of captured German documents, Fund 500, deposited in the Central Archive of the Ministry of Defence of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (Центральный архив Министерства обороны СССР, today's Центральный архив Министерства обороны Российской Федерации, abbreviation ЦАМО). These captured documents are being gradually digitalised within the joint project of the German Historical Institute in Moscow and the Central Archive of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation, enabling the author to use them as the source for the study. The documents provide us with the missing pieces of the puzzle, so far only consisting of the documents preserved in the National Archives and Record Administration, Washington D. C. and Bundesarchiv/Militärarchiv in German Freiburg.
