Originally, the first of it's kind.,
This review is from: German Aircraft of World War II (Hardcover)German Aircraft of World War II was originally published in 1975 and was the very first book to show these aircraft as they truly were. Each aircraft type is shown in strict alphabetical order with specifications, dimensions, weight, crew, performance, height, range and armament figures all included. Almost every page is supported by black and white photographs showing many different aspects of life in the Luftwaffe in addition to pictures of various aircraft in the skies. In the middle of the book is a 48 page colour section. Colour photography was not the more popular medium during WW2 - if only because there were very few outlets for colour photographs. These, however, reveal something very interesting.
It is fair to say that better books on this subject now exist - but I wonder how many authors of those commenced by reading this one.
