Conversations between Luftwaffe prisoners - summer 1944 summary

Hello,

First, my thanks to the forum owner and moderator(s) for facilitating my membership of this forum.

By way of expressing my gratitude, please see below a summary of the content of conversations between Luftwaffe prisoners monitored by the Allies during summer 1944. Possibly this sort of thing has been made available on this forum before, in which case I apologise for duplicating effort. Still, if this is a useful summary to some people, I hope it it will be interesting to at least a few forum users.

The extract below comes from an appendix to a chapter in my forthcoming (probably late 2022, self-published) bibliography / source guide to the German perspective on the Normandy campaign. Normandy 1944 is my main research interest. The bibliography consists of nine chapters plus numerous appendices. Chapter 9, plus three appendices, focus on the Luftwaffe role in the campaign.

Anyway, here's the relevant stuff:
