The Luftwaffe Album
Fighters and Bombers of the German Air Force, 1933-1945
This omnibus edition of Fighters of the Luftwaffe and Bombers of the Luftwaffe presents an insight into the development of German air power from 1933 to the end of World War II. Over 600 photographs from private sources, national archives and manufacturers' records illustrate 35 fighter aircraft and 50 bombers. Together they show the progress made by German aeronautical engineers in the face of always difficult and, in the end, overwhelmingly impossible conditions. The photographs illustrate selected aircraft in prototype, during construction, in action, and in close detail to feature weaponry, engines, cockpits, markings and other design elements of interest.
