Brand New Book
This book is volume Eleven of Nigel Parker's Luftwaffe Crash Archive. Researched over twenty years, this incredible body of work brings together details from the official RAF intelligence and interrogation reports, and combines them into a definitive guide to every enemy aircraft that came down over the UK during WWII. With over 150 photos in each volume, drawn from dozens of expert sources, this lavishly illustrated series is a must for any Luftwaffe enthusiast or indeed anyone with an interest in the Air-War 1939-1945.
Volume Eleven covers the first five months of 1944 and mainly deals with Operation Steinbock. Although there were fewer aircraft operating over the UK by this time, there were many exotic types involved such as the He177, Ju188, Me410, Do217K, Ju290, Ju88S etc This volume has the usual selection of original photos, colour profiles and specially commissioned maps to illustrate the aircraft involved and where they fell.
