The design, development, and application of the Nazi aircraft--a story of technological genius harnessed by the pressures of war
Throughout much of World War II the Nazis' military technology was far more advanced than anything the Allies could produce. Here, an aviation historian tells the story of the planes and weaponry that represented the cutting edge of aviation technology, detailing their design, development, and application, and the struggles of those who built them. German scientists and engineers were always under pressure from the German High Command during the conflict, and as it drew to a close they were caught between the Allies who wished to control them, and the SS who would stop at nothing to prevent them falling into Allied hands. This book provides unrivalled insight into the aircraft that made Germany an almost indomitable enemy.
