This book suffers because of the superb "Luftwaffe secret projects" trilogy, it can't really reach that level of glossiness, BUT it's still a good book with a lot of nice illustrations.

Great reference! 8 May 2013
By JP Seattle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The author presents each aircraft in alphabetical order by manufacturer, and includes a single piece of artwork as well as a 3-view for nearly every aircraft and any related iterations. His descriptions are interesting and to the point, and provide a framework for further thought and research. Both Volume 1 and 2 should be purchased for a complete reference. I find myself going back to them quite a bit, and imagine they would be a good reference for aviation history buffs, as well as kit and RC modelers alike. The introductory sections also have some nice discussions of the intended tactics for some of the designs, like "ramming", etc. A few of the paintings have a slight skew to their perspective, but I'd imagine that painting this many representations was a monumental task, overall very well done.

Luftwaffe! - How could have it turned out 26 Mar. 2009
By Paul Kimberley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book gives a fantastic insite into what could have been if the German high command would've had the courage they have now back then. I guess it seemed very alien to them as do some ideas now,when war is the focus & winning the aim many peoples minds are distorted by anger & being desperate to win.
Thankfully not many of these marvels of engineering made it to the war zone. At least we know where the Americans got all there ideas from apart from the british,you can see so many aircraft nowadays with the same technology used on them. The book is well put together & very informative with fantastic pictures,technical drawings & information.
