{detailed description}From an inauspicious beginning in 1926, the Bayerische Flugzeugwerke and its successor the Messerschmitt Flugzeugwerke, designed no less than 43% of the total number of military aircraft built for Nazi Germany.
The most successful early Messerschmitt aircraft were the M 18 airliner and the M 23 light plane.These were followed bythe Bf 109, one of the world's most famous aircraft, and the twin-engined Bf 110. On the more radical side, the company also built the Me 163 and Me 262, respectively the world's first operational rocket and jet propelled fighters.
This book tells the story of Messerschmitt from the Pilotus glider of 1921 to the newly established MBB GmbH, currently the largest German aircraft company. Apart from the aircraft, the book describes the use of them by Lufthansa, the Luftwaffe and other air forces.
More than 150 photographs illustrate the text.
