yes it was a slauterhouse in the bay of biscay, the allies were there to stop the u-boats getting out, and the luftwaffe was trying to protect the u boats, then the kreigsmarine started making FLAK BOATS to drive off attacking allied aircraft, and the allies responded by sending more aircraft etc etc

You should be able to get it through amazon as well. It's a good read.

-------------------------------------

In the struggle for labour resources the (German) air ministry was at a considerable disadvantage politically, since labour recruitment and allocation was controlled by agencies directly linked to the army, and unsympathetic to Luftwaffe demands. During 1942 the number of workers allocated rose hardly at all despite the large numbers drafted in from Europe. Over the whole period the army continued to recruit skilled workers even in the protected factories. In all the aircraft factories an average of between 45 and 50 per cent of the workforce was composed of foreign labour by the end of the war.
