German Aircraft of the Second World War: Including Helicopters and Missiles
First published in 1972, this book has been through eight reprintings, but now is republished in a revised edition incorporating new information and illustrations. The book traces the development of the German aircraft industry from the restrictions imposed by the 1919 Treaty of Versailles through the rebirth of the German military aviation in 1935, when the Nazi government renounced its treaty obligations. The history of German military aviation during 1935-45 is told via detailed descriptions and development and operational histories of its aircraft.
The revision incorporates new material including information drawn from postwar testing by pilots in the Soviet Union, the United States and Britain. The revisions ensure that this book remains the most complete reference work of its kind.
