Stukas - Dive Bombers
The superbly illustrated sepia-tone book shows Stukas like the early Junkers K47, the Henschel Hs123 and the Junkers Ju88, but 90% of the focus is on the Junkers Ju87 dive bomber that was the work horse of the German Luftwaffe.
The Ju87 Sturzkampfflugzeug or Stuka is shown in the field and in the air battling from Spain to Russia and from Africa and the Mediterranean to England, sinking ships, knocking out tanks and trains, and in general establishing a new aspect in aerial warfare.
Like no other book Sturzkampfflugzeuge shows the airframe and the engine of the Ju87 being built, and the finished product dishing out and taking enormous punishment. A particularly interesting section consists of comments from enemy troops who were subjected to Stuka bombing.
