Smith, Peter C.


Ian Allan, rep., 1980. 128 pp., frontis., + photo-ills. D.j., 30 x 22cm. FINE. For a time, during the Battle of Britain, the Stuka earned the reputation of a ‘sitting duck’, a ‘failure’, but over the Dunkirk beaches, the Mediterranean fleet and the Russian Front, Stuka meant defeat, despair and more often death. Here then is the story of the aircraft that changed aerial warfare, dominated land warfare and challenged sea warfare. Including many personal, eyewitness accounts this is the story of the aircraft the Germans claimed as the ‘Conqueror of Continents’.
