Fokker, Sopwith & Co: Flugzeugveteranen von 1912-18
Hiscock, Melvyn
Aus der Reihe "Technothek"

Als man gerade 20 Jahre lang den bemannten Motorflug
kannte, entdeckten auch die Militärs den Wert dieser epochalen Erfindung für ihre Zwecke. Zu einer Zeit, als das Flugzeug noch kaum kommerziell genutzt wurde, machte es im Kriegseinsatz den ersten großen Entwicklungssprung seiner Geschichte. Einige Hersteller wie Fokker, Sopwith, AVRO oder SPAD erlangten mit ihren fragilen Konstruktionen aus Holz und Stoff erste Berühmtheit, und es entstand eine Vielfalt von Baumustern. Die wenigen Überlebenden jener Pioniertage werden in diesem Buch vorgestellt.

Follow Me Through: The Ups and Downs of a RAF Flying Instructor
Brooke, Mike
Catch a rare glimpse into the training of the nation's defence personnel, as pilot turned flying instructor Mike Brooke shares with us some of his amusing first-hand flying stories.
After his success as a Cold War Canberra pilot, Mike was dispatched to become a flying instructor at the Central Flying School in the 1970s. 'Follow him through' - as he would instruct his trainees - as he experiences the quite literal ups and downs of teaching the Glasgow and Strathclyde Air Squadron. Discover how he battled the diminutive de Havilland Chipmunk in order to teach others how to fly the aircraft, before finally moving to instruct on the Canberra in its many marks.
Here Mike will take you on a quite often bumpy journey as an instructor of pilots old and new, recounting tales of flying, near accidents and less serious incidents that flying these old but still demanding aircraft bring.
Following on from his debut book, A Bucket of Sunshine, Mike continues to use his personal experience to bring aviation to life, proving indispensable for any aviation enthusiast.
MIKE BROOKE joined the RAF in 1962. After serving on the Iow-level strike/attack squadron, Brooke became a flying instructor and experimental lest pilot. Further test flying tours followed, but in 1984, after twenty-two years in flying appointments, he was sent to the RAF Advanced Staff College. He was promoted to Wing Commander and took command of flying at RAF Farnborough, leaving the RAF in 1994. He then became a test-flying consultant, finally retiring in 2004. Brooke has flown around 7,300 hours on 140 types of aircraft of all classes except seaplanes. In 1984, he was awarded the Air Force Cross by HM Queen Elizabeth and is a Fellow of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots.

German Aircraft of the Second World War
Smith, J. R. - Kay, Antony L.
First Edition

German Aircraft of the Second World War traces the development of the German aircraft industry and the rebirth of German military aviation together with details of the organizations responsible.
The main part of the work is devoted to detailed descriptions and development and operational histories of all categories of aircraft in service during the war including operational aircraft and the major types of trainers.
Following this section there is full coverage of Germany's rotary-wing aircraft including the gyro-kites used at sea with the U-boat fleets. Of enormous interest is the selection of aircraft projects - many so advanced in conception that they had a major influence on post-war aircraft development in Britain, France, the United States and the Soviet Union.
The final main section of this book is devoted to the wide range of German guided and un-guided missiles including the V1 flying bomb and the V2 rockets which paved the way for man's exploration of space.
Appendixes list the type numbers allocated to German aircraft and many of the more advanced projects.
The aircraft and many of the missiles are illustrated by hundreds of photographs many of which have not previously been published. There is also a large number of very detailed general-arrangement drawings.

Germanys First Air Force: 1914 - 1918
Kilduff, Peter
Just a few short years after man built his first flying machine, Germany's first air force was ready for action; 1910 and 1911 were its formative years, prior to the establishment in 1912 by von Moltke of a separate air arm known as the Fliegertruppe.
The techniques adopted and refined by pilots during the initial stages of the war were reminiscent of a medieval joust, combat consisting of the two foes, armed with hand-held weaponry, coming together at speed. Progress, however, was quite rapid and Germany strove to maintain a lead over her foes, developing such fine fighter aircraft as the Albatros and Fokker series; bombers such as the AEG Gotha and Friedrichshafen series. Skilied and innovative pilots like Immelmann and Boelcke devised many air fighting techniques.
Peter Kilduff has researched the subject for twenty-five years and has interviewed more than a hundred German aviators. He has had unparalleled access to German archives in East and West, thereby enabling him to present full and first-hand accounts of the often-forgotten airmen who were every bit as brave as their more famous compatriots. Air actions in both eastern and western theatres are featured, and the full range of operational aspects is covered, from bombing, reconnaissance, and balloons, to fighter escort, ground-support, and marine interdiction. In addition, lengthy coverage is given to the exploits of Lothar von Richthofen, the Red Baron's highly gifted younger brother.
Diligently researched and magnificently illustrated, Germany's First Air Force is a valuable addition to aviation history and will be welcomed by enthusiasts.

Geschichte des Luftkriegs 1910 bis 1980
Groehler, Olaf
«Am Morgen des 14. November 1940 wurden die Luftflotten 2 und 3 angewiesen, in der Nacht Coventry zu bombardieren. Die faschistische Führung zog zu diesem Zweck alle ihre noch in Westeuropa verbliebenen Bombenfliegerkräfte heran... Um Mitternacht langten die Hauptkräfte des I., IV. und V. Fliegerkorps über Coventry an. In präzis geplantem Wechsel warfen sie schwere und mittelschwere Sprengbomben ab, die die Häuser in Trümmer legten ... Besatzungen des Kampfgeschwaders l, die gegen 03.30 Uhr Coventry angriffen, meldeten ...»
Eine Stadt zu «coventrieren» wurde zum Synonym des sinnlosen, barbarischen Luftterrors gegen die Zivilbevölkerung mit dem Ziel, die Städte dem Erdboden gleichzumachen und alles Leben in ihnen auszulöschen. Aber nicht nur diese Seite des Luftkriegsgeschehens der letzten 70 Jahre, die bestimmte Wesenszüge des Imperialismus enthüllt, beschreibt der Autor in seinem Buch; auch die Luftschlachten des ersten Weltkriegs, die Entwicklung der sowjetischen Luft-Streitkräfte, die Einsatzprinzipien und Luftkriegsanschauungen der 20er und 30er Jahre, den Luftkrieg über Äthiopien und Spanien, die Kampfhandlungen der Luftstreitkräfte an der sowjetischdeutschen Front, die Entwicklung der Luftstreitkräfte in den bedeutendsten Staaten nach 1945 sowie Luftkriegskonzeptionen und Luftkriege der jüngsten Vergangenheit lernen wir kennen. Daneben vermittelt der Autor einen aufschlußreichen Einblick in den Zusammenhang von Politik und Kriegführung und zeigt am Beispiel des Luftkriegs die Einführung neuer Bewaffnung und ihre Auswirkungen auf die Kampfhandlungen, die dabei aufgetretenen taktischen und technischen Probleme sowie den gesellschaftlichen und politischen Unterschied in der Entwicklung sozialistischer und imperialistischer Luftstreitkräfte.
Seine Darlegungen werden durch eine Vielzahl interessanter historischer Fotos, grafischer Darstellungen, eine Auswahl der gebräuchlichen Militärflugzeugtypen, sowie viele Tabellen und farbige Karten veranschaulicht und erläutert.

Gladiator vs CR.42 Falco: 1940-41
Gustavsson, Håkan - Slongo, Ludovico
This is the account of machines of war pitted against each other and the combatants who operated them. Step onto the battlefield and immerse yourself in the experience of real historic combat.
Both the Gloster Gladiator and the Fiat CR.42 represented the peak in the development of the biplane fighter which could trace its lineage back to World War I. However, by the time both aircraft entered service in the late 1930s, they were already obsolete. Nevertheless, they gave sterling service on all fronts in the Mediterranean and Africa in 1940-41. Indeed, the CR.42 was the Regia Aeronautica's staple fighter in both North and East Africa, Greece and over Malta in 1940-41, during which time its pilots routinely fought against British and Commonwealth squadrons equipped in the main with Gladiators. Some bitter dogfights were fought between these two types as the Allies attempted to seize control of the skies over North Africa, Greece and East Africa. The biplanes were, in the main, flown by highly experienced pre-war pilots, and this in turn made for some closely fought engagements.

The Gloster Meteor typifies the advance of technology during World War Two more than any other type. Not only was it the first turbojet-powered aeroplane to enter service with the RAF, but it came from the Company that produced the Gladiator biplane fighter which was still in front-line service during the early war years.
The Meteor went on to enjoy a service career that spanned five decades. Built as a fighter, nightfighter, photo-reconnaissance aeroplane and trainer, it was also widely used as a trials aircraft and one example is still used for live-firing tests of ejector seats.
Barry Jones tells the full story of the design, development and
operational career of this extraordinary aeroplane. He also covers the export versions and trials aircraft in this well researched and illustrated book.

Haarscharf am Abgrund vorbei…: Als Luftwaffenhelfer der 6./le.Flak-Abt. 755 in Krieg und Gefangenschaft 1944/1945
Behrens, Friedrich
Das Buch stellt einen sehr prägenden Ausschnitt aus dem Leben des Autors dar. Heimatnah nach Stade einberufen - wie bereits vorher viele Jugendliche seiner Generation - fand er sich nach Abschluss der Ausbildung und einigen Verlegungen mit seiner Fiak-Batterie im Endkampf um Berlin wieder, Eine glückliche Fügung des Schicksals wollte es, dass er dem einzigen Zug der Batterie angehörte, der noch vor Eintreffen der sowjetischen Truppen aus der Reichshauptstadt herausgelöst wurde, Aber damit war er den lebensbedrohenden Situationen durch Tiefflieger, Bombardements und Artilleriebeschuss bei weitem nicht entronnen. Erst nach Durchschwimmen der Elbe bei Wittenberge gelangte er am 2,Mai 1945 in amerikanische Kriegsgefangenschaft, Diese bescherte ihm nicht nur einen Aufenthalt in einem der berüchtigten „Rheinwiesenlager" bei Rheinberg, sondern später auch eines der ersten „Re-Education Camps" bei Foucarville in der Normandie. Nach seiner Entlassung erreichte er von dort gegen Ende September 1945 seine Heimat Sittensen.

Harrier: Ski-jump to Victory
Godden, John (Editor)
Since the Falklands campaign ended in June 1982 many and varied accounts have been published on the performance of the British naval and military equipment deployed in the South Atlantic.
Regardless of comments - often highly critical - made about the performance and combat-worthiness of other equipment used there has been universal agreement that the Royal Navy's Sea Harriers and the Royal Air Forces's Harrier GR3s emerged from this, their baptism of fire, with a reputation that is now legendary. Dauntingly outnumbered, these small subsonic jets held the Falklands airspace against the might of the Argentine Air Force's fast subsonic and supersonic aircraft, and they emerged victorious.
This book recounts the personal experience of just a few of the RN and RAF personnel who took the Harrier to war for the first time. It uses their words to tell of their own thoughts and actions, their feelings about the conflict and how V/STOL was vindicated during its greatest test.
Illustrating the personal accounts are over 100 photographs, many of which have not been seen publicly before.
John Godden, the editor, embarked on this project while the Falklands campaign was still in progress and has taken the best part of a year researching and compiling the material contained here.
His Professional experience was gained in journalism beginning on local newspapers before moving to an internationally recognised daily. For the last three years he has been responsibleforthe production of marketing material for the Hawk and Harrier at the Kingston-upon-Thames factory of British Aerospace.
The idea for this account of the air war in the Falklands originated shortly after the ceasefire, foltowing John Godden's first meeting with Lieutenant Commander Tony Ogilvy RN, whose personal account of the action formed the earliest cornerstone of the present Contents.

Hawker Hurricane
Jacobs, Peter
Crowood Aviation Series

First Edition

The Hawker Hurricane was one of the most important aeroplanes of World War Two. Although sometimes overshadowed by its contemporary, the Supermarine Spitfire, it was a first-class fighter which went on to become a liighly effective ground-attack aeroplane, carrying larger weapons than its designers had anticipated.
Peter Jacobs tells the full story of this remarkable aeroplane, from its beginnings in the days before World War Two, through its Service in the Battle of Britain, over Europe and in the skies of Russia, the desert and the Far East, and its use as a naval fighter.
With many rare photographs this is a fine addition to the Crowood Aviation Series.

Hawker Typhoon, Tempest and Sea Fury
Darling, Kev
Crowood Aviation Series

First Edition

The Typhoon was designed by Hawkers as a replacement for their own successful but soon outclassed Hurricane. The key to the success of the new type - its hugely powerful 24-cylinder engine - however proved to be a mixed blessing, as it could not be persuaded to work reliably at altitude. But in the ground-attack role, to which the Typhoon was hastily transferred, the aircraft made its name and played an important part supporting Allied troops in the liberation of Europe. The Tempest was a development of the Typhoon, using a new and more modern wing section that increased the top speed of the aircraft and which, when combined with the Bristol Centaurus radial engine in the Tempest II variant, made for a most effective fighter.
The final development of the line was the Fury, which took the essential elements of the Tempest II and wrapped them in a smaller, lighter and more agile package. The RAF, in fact, never ordered a Fury, but in Naval form as the Sea Fury it was the mainstay of the Fleet Air Arm during the Korean War and after.
This well-researched and readable book tells the full story of these important aircraft.

Heaven Next Stop: A Luftwaffe Fighter Pilot at War
Bloemertz, Gunther
Revised Edition

First published in 1953, 'Heaven Next Stop' is the vivid personal story of a German fighter pilot set in the latter years of the Second World War. Günther Bloemertz was one of the legendary 'Abbeville Boys' of Jagdgeschwader 26 who flew Focke-Wulf FW 190 day fighters from their base in northern France against intruding RAF fighters and USAAF bombers.
Bloemertz describes life and death on the squadron, his fellow pilots and their almost daily duels with RAF Spitfires and USAAF Flying Fortresses, fought at both ground level and in the stratosphere over the Pas de Calais. Following the D-Day landings his Geschwader was eventually forced to retreat into Germany in August 1944 from where they fought an increasingly desperate battle against the Allied massed bomber streams. On New Year's Day 1945 he took part in the massive Luftwaffe dawn attack on Allied airfields in Belgium and Holland, Operation 'Bodenplatte', which claimed the lives of many Allied airmen and destroyed dozens of aircraft on the ground.
Bloemertz concludes his story by relating the part he played as a fighter pilot defending the crumbling Third Reich in its final death throes, when he and fellow pilot Werner were all that remained of the original 'Abbeville Boys'. In the last hours of the war both Günther and Werner were shot down in dogfights with Allied fighters. Werner was killed and Günther bailed out of his aircraft, his face and body horrifically burned.
Heaven Next Stop gives us a fascinating insight into the lives of the Luftwaffe's fighter pilots during the Second World War. It also emphasizes that apart from the small number of Nazi fanatics in their ranks, there was little to distinguish the average Luftwaffe pilot from his opposite numbers in the RAF or USAAF… Looking at a photograph of RAF pilots in a magazine, one of Bloemertz's fellow pilots exclaims: 'Have a look at those faces! They might just as well belong to us.'

Heinkel He 100 Record Breaker: Variants - Weapons - Equipment
Hood, Erwin
First Edition.
From the series: Military Aircraft in Detail

Though the Luftwaffe ordered the famous Messerschmitt Bf 109 as its front-line fighter for delivery in 1937, aircraft designer Ernst Heinkel proposed a much faster aircraft. This was the Heinkel He 100, completed the same year as a small, sleek, clipped wing single-seat aircraft with an inverted vee 12-cylinder Daimler-Benz DB 601 engine.
On 30 March 1939, piloted by Hans Dieterle, the He 100, set a new absolute world speed record, when the eighth such prototype aircraft to be built flew at 746.6 krn/h, delighting Hitler with a global propaganda coup. While a number were sold to the Soviet Union and Japan as machine-gun and cannon-armed variants, the rest were taken by the Luftwaffe to form the Heinkel-Rostock defence unit. In 1940 this unit was used by Josef Goebbels, the Nazi Propaganda Minister, to convince Britain that Germany had another fighter in service, the spurious 'He 113'.
The He 100 was an enigmatic aircraft, about which still relatively little is known. This book covers all aspects of the aircraft's development, the various sub-series produced, its high-speed accomplishments, and use that was made of it for propaganda and intelligence purposes. The aircraft which were supplied to Russia and Japan are examined as well as a later project based on it. This volume also includes a number of previously unpublished photographs, colour artworks and specially produced detailed technical drawings.
The author has spent many years researching this enigmatic aircraft. In this volume of Military Aircraft in Detail, the He 100 is covered in unprecedented detail. The book includes:
Design and development
Sub-series
High-Speed accomplishments
Propaganda and Intelligence values
Soviel and Japanese usage
Commissioned colour artwork
Specially produced technical drawings

Heinkel He 111
Mackay, Ron
Crowood Aviation Series

First Edition

The Heinkel He 111 is perhaps the best known of all the Luftwaffe's World War Two bombers. Designed originally as a civil airliner, it made its mark in the bomber role in the Spanish Civil War. Active from the beginning of World War Two, the He 111 played a crucial part in the bombardment of targets in Britain and, later, the Eastern Front.
Ron Mackay's history of this important aircraft places it firmly in the context of the course of World War Two, and shows how it went from being a fast, effective machine to a seriously outclassed deathtrap, attempting to stay on the offensive right up until the end of the war.
Illustrated with many archive photographs, this is a book for anyone interested in aviation or World War Two.

Heinkel He 162 Spatz: From Drawing Board to Destruction: The Volksjager Spatz
Forsyth, Robert - Creek, Eddie J.
If it can be said that adversity generates creativity, then the story ofthe Heinkel He 162 jetfighter is testimony to such a precept. From the summer of 1944, the adversity facing the leadership of the Third Reich was formidable. Ironically however, the very existence of such adversity prompted the construction of many inventive and radical designs to undertake the air defence of the Reich on a determined and even manic scale. The pinnacle of these accomplishments was the so-called Volksjäger-project, the 'People's Fighter', which was, and still is, regarded as a 'miracle of production'.
Created in desperation by the Nazi leadership in mid-1944, and powered by a BMW turbojet, the He 162 was known to its pilots as the 'Spatz' (the 'Sparrow'). It represented an unprecedented aeronautical and engineering achievement, with the jet-powered interceptor going from drawing board to operational readiness in just six months, often at considerable human cost. It was foreseen that hundreds of mass-produced, cheap-to-build He 162 Volksjäger, flown by hurriedly trained young pilots using a combination of technology and fanaticism, would defend the skies over Germany against massive formations of Allied heavy bombers and their fighter escorts.
In this extensively researched book, aviation historians Robert Forsyth and Eddie J. Creekdraw, for the first time, on previously unused Heinkel Company papers to offer a unique insight into the workings of the Nazi production system in the late war period, as well as other German and Allied documents. Their work is supported by many rare photographs and accompanied by line drawings and facsimile documents as well as highly detailed colour art-work by He 162 specialist, Simon Schatz.
Heinkel He 162 Spatz offers the whole history ofthe Volksjäger project, from its inception in September 1944, through to the aircraft's ultimate operational deployment with Jagdgeschwader l, and is the most comprehensive history of this amazing aircraft ever to be published in the English language. A natural accompaniment to the other detailed German aircraft monographs from Classic Publications, it is certain to find a ready audience and will form an essential reference work for all those interested in the airpower of World War 2.

Heinkel He 177 Greif: Heinkel's Strategic Bomber
Smith, J. Richard - Creek, Eddie J.
This is the intriguing and fascinating story of an aircraft which could have been one of the most important weapons in the Luftwaffe's armoury and a major problem to the wartime Allies, the Heinkel He 177 strategic bomber. Due however to political incompetence and design vacillation during its development it was never to achieve its full potential.
At its conception there were conflicting views on how it should be used. One problem was that the huge aircraft should be capable of delivering its bombs in a dive. Another was the technical one associated with its enormous engines, two conventional units coupled together to drive a single propeller. These difficulties were never really satisfactorily solved and Heinkel's suggestion that a version be produced powered by four separate engines fell on deaf ears until it was far too late. Eventually the engine problems were largely solved but, by that time, Germany lacked the reserves of fuel to mount a major strategic bombing attack.
The problems that beset the aircraft were to have a disastrous effect on the brave men, both test pilots and operational crews, who flew the aircraft.
Many died due to crashes attributed not only to the unreliable engines, but also to a fundamental weakness with the wing. The story of the He 177 is made more unfortunate by the British aircraft industry's experience. It too developed a strategic bomber to be powered by two massive 24-cylinder engines which was also to be capable of delivering its bombs in a dive. However the resulting Avro Manchester was quickly withdrawn from service and replaced by the four-engined Lancaster, which proved one of the most successful aircraft of the war.
In telling the absorbing story of this aircraft in what is the most comprehensive study to appear in the English language, authors J. Richard Smith and Eddie J. Creek have been able to draw on many previously unpublished documents and photographs. Accompanied by some superb colour profile artworks, this is a major work of reference for all World War 2 historians and aviation enthusiasts.

Heinkel He 177, 277, 274
Griehl, Manfred - Dressel, Joachim
The story of the evolution of Heinkel's heavyweight is one of genius, disaster and despair. The He 177 was conceived as a long-range heavy dive-bomber, a sort of 'Big Stuka' and it was hoped that it would become one of the pillars of the Luftwaffe's armament. It was an aeroplane that incorporated many novel ideas and inventions - too many, since the aircraft became plagued with teething problems that affected many aspects of the test flying programme and eventually led to relatively small production runs.
Many configurations were tried as the designers struggled to iron out the problems of unreliability that were causing the deaths of many pilots and crew. Such novel ideas as two engines powering one propeller were eventually dropped and a more conventional four-engine model was born. This then, is the entire story of this unlucky aeroplane and its operational career.

Henschel Hs 129: Variants - Weapons - Equipment
Bernád, Dénes
First Edition.
From the series: Military Aircraft in Detail

The Hs 129 was the Luftwaffe's first purpose-designed ground-attack aircraft - born out of experience in the Spanish Civil War where obsolescent types were found wanting in the ground-attack role. In a battlefront where air superiority had been gained, there was a need for a small, nimble, twin-engine, heavily armed and armoured aircraft in the close-support role.
First seeing the light of day as the underpowered Anton (A series), the specification was redrawn into a much improved aircraft. But the need for the aircraft in its assigned role was paramount, so aspects of the improved design were incorporated into the Anton airframe. Thus was born the Berta (B series), a type that was to see much service in North Africa and the Eastern Front. Passing through a series of sub-types, the Berta incorporated various armament configurations including a belly mounted 30 mm cannon and culminating in the B-3 variant packing a 75 mm BK 7,5 cannon. Much loved by most of its pilots, the Hs 129 went on to acquire a formidable reputation in its close-support role -recognised as such even by the Russians!
In this voiume of Military Aircraft in Detail, the Anton and Berta is covered in unprecedented detail, included are:
Design and Development
Airframe and Equipment
Armament Configurations
Detailed Drawings
Engines
Advanced Weapons
The Military Aircraft in Detail series forms a comprehensive library of facts covering detailed aspects of both classic military and civilran aircraft.
