Brand New Book
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 the Second World War. With over 200 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 Five covers from the 28th September 1940 – 27th Ocotber 1940. This period covers the final phase of the Battle of Britain when large formations of bomb carrying Bf109s were roaming over southern England, forcing the RAF to launch standing patrols to combat this new menace. As such this book mainly contains Bf109s in various states of disrepair along with a selection of bombers mainly brought down at night as The Blitz started to intensify.
