Where was the Luftwaffe on D-Day? Following decades of debate, 2010 saw a formerly classified history restored and in it was a new set of answers. Pointblank is the result of extensive new research that creates a richly textured portrait of perhaps the last untold story of D-Day: three uniquely talented men and why the German Air Force was unable to mount an effective combat against the invasion forces.

Following a year of unremarkable bombing against German aircraft industries, General Henry H. ''Hap'' Arnold, commander of the U.S. Army Air Forces, placed his lifelong friend General Carl A. ''Tooey'' Spaatz in command of the strategic bombing forces in Europe, and his protege, General James ''Jimmy'' Doolittle, command of the Eighth Air Force in England. For these fellow aviation strategists, he had one set of orders - sweep the skies clean of the Luftwaffe by June 1944. The plan was called Pointblank.
