5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic insight into aircraft history 5 Oct 2001
This was a present for my brother that he very nearly didn't get, I nearly kept it for myself.
For anyone interested in aircraft, this book is a breath of fresh air. The level of ingenuity (or perhaps desperation in some cases) shown in this book beggars belief and is totally captivating.
The influence of the designs over the post war period are undeniable, the most obvious example being the Mig-15, although much of the 50/60's experimental aircraft can be seen as being influenced by designs in this book. From the brilliant to the bizarre, most of these designs shun evolution for revolution, and could just as easily inspire future aircraft designers as much as those in the 1940's.
As a reference, it covers almost every item that I could find on the internet, with comparible depth. There may be gaps in information, but I can't find them.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Book 10 July 2012
If you have only a vague inkling of the Luftwaffes secret aircraft projects this book will blow you away !!!! Profusely illustrated with a well-written text this is a superb book . Throughout the book you will encounter concepts being explored for the first time which we now regard as accepted ideas . This book graphically illustrates how far outside the envelope German designers were thinking as the Third Reich collapsed around them !!!! An amazing book !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Fascinating 5 Feb 2004
By FX102
One look at this book, and you will realise how advanced German aviation technology truly was during World War II. A wide variety of different fighter types, propellor, rocket and jet powered, are covered by this book with full colour artist's impressions and their interesting history. A perfect choice for those who love to read about 'what could have been'.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real Luftwaffe '46 16 Feb 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A fascinating book on German jet designs. After reading it one can't help but feel that the skys over Korea were contested by MEs (Sabres) and FWs (MIGs) - albeit with British engines. One can only question the insanity of so much effort put into designs that the Reich could never have built, let alone fuelled, when all was going to hell in a handcart. Great engineering designs, but they reinforce the image of the Third Reich as a madhouse, out of touch with reality.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad 28 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The illustrations could have been better and there could have been a few more photographs but given the topic it's not a bad book.
