I don't have it. It's full of errors.

Only kidding. It's fine work (even with the errors). However it's been exceeded, IMO, by Smith and Kay's "German Aircraft Of The Second World War" that is in its third edition - with its errors corrected.

Average Customer Review: Based on 2 reviews. Write a review.

third edition of a publication first published in 1972 contains a complete historical record of the more than 600 types of aircraft that served in the German aviation arm during World War II. Among those included are the Junkers, Focke-Wulf, Arado, Blohm und Voss, B├╝cker, Heinkel, Gotha, Deutsches Forschungsinstitut, Fieseler, and the legendary Meserschmitt. The book also covers Germany's rotary-wing aircraft, gyro-kites used at sea by U-boats, experimental models, trainers, and guided and unguided missiles. Scale plans, specifications, and a generous selection of photographs and line drawings ensure that this book is one of the most complete reference works of its kind. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.



Reviewer: Rowland M. Parks from Newport News, Virginia United States
A contemporary work to "Warplanes Of The Third Reich." This book lacks the sheer number of photographs in "Warplanes...", but is an invaluable resource nonetheless. The book is extremely detailed and covers all aircraft and variants employed by the NAZIs during the Second World War. Errors are minimal to non-existant and the book's detail is every bit that of "Warplanes..." This book is a "must" for the serious student of World War Two combat aircraft.



Reviewer: Alexandre Gabriel Vitorino Mariano (see more about me) from Vagos, Vagos Portugal
A rival title to Green's WARPALNES OF THE THIRD REICH, of similar vintage and also presenting some errors that only recently were corrected by intense research, nevertheless a superb title for all those searching for a Luftwaffe Encyclopedia, but not to be considered accurate, a good and value acquisition for those really interested on the subject
