Description

The story of the Fw 190 and its successor, the Ta 152, the third book in the Harleyford 'Fighter' series, is in many ways different from the second and previous one on the Messerschmitt 109. While Willy Messerschmitt's design was enthusiastically supported from all sides, Kurt Tank, designer of the Fw 190, had to battle from the outset for the acceptance of his concept for a fighter—one that was eventually to influence even British fighter design—and this conflict with his own side persists throughout its development. Beset by problems that might have daunted a lesser man, Tank's story is fascinating for its personal aspects, apart from the technical details of the aircraft he designed.

 

Starting by tracing the history of the original Focke-Wulf company in pre-war days, the book follows through the designs that led ultimately to the Fw 190, in parallel with the exciting story of Kurt Tank himself. With the history of this famous fighter, this book acquires the status of a truly great work by the fact that it is not only a detailed study of the design, research and engineering aspect of an aircraft type, but also the intensely human story of the German fighter force in the 1939-1 945 War, for it was the selfless devotion of its pilots, engineers and mechanics, that made the FW 190 such a dominant factor in the Luftwaffe and, indeed, on the course of that war. ...
