Hi, looking for any leads to where I might find copies of Luftwaffe operational orders. The only one that I have ever come across was in Appendix 6 of Cajus Bekker's old
book 'The Luftwaffe War Diaries'

Orders of battle are now turning up in bigger numbers fortunately but actual operational orders are still a missing and vital link. Any clues will be gratefully appreciated. Ken

Quite a few turn up as Ultra decrypts but usually from Luftflotte or Division level so there is not much detail: "all fighter units at 30 minutes readiness from first light for free
lance patrols of beach head; reconnaissance units, tasks as before", that sort of thing.

Nick,

Thanks. I suspected this would be a dead end. Fragments like that could be useful but I am trying to find actual orders from HQ level. Something that sets out the plan of
attack with units and times and heights over target etc. I will put it on my wish list for Xams!

Ken
