Description

The ’ Augsburg Eagle ’ was a fighting aircraft, but no ordinary warplane. It was perhaps the most famous of all sinle - seat fighters - Messerschmitt's Bf 109. From its first appearance in Spanish skies it displayed all the characteristics of the true predatory bird, and for years its rakish contours, which endowed it with an air of ruthless efficiency, were virtually symbolic of the air power of Germany's Third Reich. No warplane ever had a more adventurous career than did this ’ Eagle ’ from Augsburg ; a career traced through all its vicissitudes and drama in his profusely illustrated book. No warplane is more assured of a place in aviation's metaphorical hall of fame than is the Messerschmitt Bf 109 that saw birth in Augsburg in 1934, met the first real challenge to its supremacy in the skies over Britain in 1940, and soldiered on in service into the late 'sixties.

William Green ( 1927 - January 2nd, 2010 ) was an aviation and military author. During service with the Royal Air Force, he wrote for the Air Training Corps Gazette, later to become Air Pictorial. William Green was technical director to the R.A.F. Flying Review, then editorial director when it became Flying Review International. In 1971 he and Gordon Swanborough jointly created the monthly Air International, of which he remained managing editor until late 1990. William Green edited numerous editions of Observer's Book of Aircraft and spent most of his adult life doing research and writing on aircraft and aviation. His work Warplanes of the Third Reich is seen as a classic aviation publication. Along with Gordon Swanborough, he wrote several books, including The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of the Worlds Commercial Aircraft, Illustrated Anatomy of the World's Fighters, The Complete Book of Fighters and Flying Colours.
