Product Description

Review

"This is a very good text for information about the daylight air campaign over the skies of Germany in WWII." -Bolling Smith, "Coast Defense Journal" "This story of the ascendancy of the daylight defense of the Reich, the struggles to keep pace with the daylight bombing campaign and the eventual defeat of the Luftwaffe is nicely presented by describing specific missions and many first hand descriptions of the battles... This is a very good text for information about the daylight air campaign over the skies of Germany in WWII." -Michael Koznarsky, "Historical Miniature Gamer Magazine .".". a nice informative book, which depicts in an austere but effective way the combat of Messerschmitt pilots against an overwhelming force of heavy bombers and escort fighters... I recommend this book for all wanting to know a little more about the men behind the machines."-Jean-Luc Formery, "AeroScale"

About the Author

Arguably the finest profile artist in the business, John Weal's love of German aircraft makes his work a treat for students of the subject. He has written several Aircraft of the Aces volumes, and two books on the Ju 87 in the companion series Combat Aircraft.

Format: Paperback
..another Weal title in the aces series .. While Mr Weal continues to write with a fluency (& a productivity) that I can only marvel at, Osprey production quality appears to be going downhill slightly - I didn't like the paper quality, indifferent and sometimes dark photo reproduction and in this age of superlative computer profile artwork renderings, Mr Weal's 'paintings' look a little amateurish - the colours especially are poorly printed. The text skips through major events and personalities with mere paragraphs being devoted to events that otherwise fill entire books and relies a touch too heavily on Knoke's oft-cited account - at least four of this volume's 96 pages are directly extracted from Knoke's book - no credit, no footnote. The story ends prematurely with Bodenplatte and mentions the biggest Reich's defence battle of the war over Berlin on 14 January 1945 in a couple of sentences...This is probably not the authors fault but like his 'Sturmgruppen' title this volume could have been better

As usual a fine and thorough book on the use and history of the famous German fighter in WW2. A nice choice of pictures, stories and artwork.

Very comprehensive. I only skim read it, as it was a present for my old man. Right up his street, and Amazon a good resource for all things 'nerdy'!

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By C. Dunning on 14 Mar. 2006
Format: Paperback
John Weal has written a clear history of the plight of Messerschmidt pilots in defence of their home territory. Imagine being a 19 or even 23 year old with only a few hours flight experience having to take off with thirty colleagues to take on a thousand well trained and well armed opponents. The narrative gives you food for thought. It is the first book I have read which points out that most victories were scored by the novices who only survived very few missions.
