Description

( … ) German Combat Planes is the first comprehensive history of all warplanes built by Germany from the beginning of the First World War to the end of the Second Word War. In a concise narrative that explains each plane's role in warfare, it describes and illustrates over 1000 aircraft, from the earliest Albatrosses and Fokkers of 1914 to the Messerschmitt Me 262 that introduced the Jet Age in 1944, providing full technical data for each as well as 1200 authentic photographs that tell much of the story themselves. In addition, prototype and experimental airplanes that influenced or demonstrated design development are also considered, as well as the mass production types that made such an impact on history.

 

( ... ) ..., German Combat Planes is an invaluable work for all aviation enthusiasts.
