Re: Analysing survival rates among Luftwaffe air crew in 'Steinbock' and other operations

I fear it’s difficult to compare the Steinbock losses to other campaigns. The main problem is the far from complete loss record for 1944. Several crews made it across the Channel with badly damaged planes, baling out, belly landing or even landing on an airfield with a plane ready to scrap. If nobody was seriously wounded, then there is no trace in the loss lists. Including these would change the statistics and conclusions.
