Poole, 1st ed., 1978. 160 pp., cold., ills. + b&w photo-ills. D.j., 25 x 19cm. Tape marks to e.p., o/w V.G.+. This is a superb reference guide illustrating over 100 principal types of aircraft used by the Luftwaffe during the war period. A concise text gives the background of their development and operational use and is supported by technical data which makes it simple to compare one type with another without intruding upon the main narrative. The background to the text is provided by a unique mixture of colour artwork, line drawings, and photographs, some in colour. Not only 'setting the scene', they also illustrate clearly the colours and markings of the Luftwaffe by key coding each colour painting to internationally accepted colour standards.
