{detailed description}German Aircraft of the Second World War traces the development of the German aircraft industry and the rebirth of German military aviation together with details of the organizations responsible.
The main part of the work is devoted to detailed descriptions and development and operational histories of all categories of aircraft in service during the war including operational aircraft and the major types of trainers.
Following this section there is full coverage of Germany's rotary-wing aircraft including the gyro-kites used at sea with the U-boat fleets.
Of enormous interest is the selection of aircraft projects — many so advanced in conception that they had a major influence on post-war aircraft development in Britain, France, the United States and the Soviet Union.
The final main section of this book is devoted to the wide range of German guided and unguided missiles including the Air flying bomb and the V2 rockets which paved the way for man's exploration of space.
Appendices list the type numbers allocated to German aircraft and many of the more advanced projects.
The aircraft and many of the missiles are illustrated by hundreds of photographs. There is also a large number of very detailed general-arrangement drawings.
