Re: Flak/AA - Why do we not research it ?

I would like to recommend a reference book on German flak, the one written by Edward B. Westermann, published by the University Press of Kansas, in 2001 (BTW, it's one of only a handful of AAA related books in my aviation library of several thousand titles).

Here is a small excerpt from the Conclusion drawn by the Author: "...flak defenses accounted for over half of USAAF combat losses during the war in Europe, downing almost 5,400 aircraft, compared with the 4,300 aircraft shot down by Luftwaffe fighters."

Indeed, a most interesting topic, largely ignored by researchers and authors.
