Luftwaffe Secret Projects: Ground Attack & Special Purpose Aircraft by Dieter Herwig



Luftwaffe:: seci(et projects: ground attack &. Special purpose aircraft. Junkers K47 1926101928. Use: Two-seal lighter, dive-bomber and ground allack aircraft. Conslruction: Cantilever mid-wing monoplane of all-metal construction with thin rectangular wings of constant thickness/chord ratio. lis braced undercarriage differed from the usual Junkers type of construction. Fixed supporting struts formed the load-bearing element between the fuselage and wheels. 30. Luftwaffe secret projects: ground attack &. Special puhi'ose aircraft. attack and dive-bomber role, capable of car~. At this point, the previously largely unknown dive-bomber and ground attack projects of the brothers Wolfgang and Ulrich HOtter are published for the firsl time anywhere.

The two previous volumes in this hugely popular series have covered Fighters 1939-1945 and Strategic Bombers 1935-1945. As in the first two volumes, the technical descriptions and histories of about 140 aircraft types are brought to life by many specially created full-color artworks, showing the projects, often in unit markings, as they might have appeared if they had come to fruition and/or if the war had continued beyond 1945.

Dieter Herwig, born in 1926, was called up for service with the ent at Berlin-Gatow, on the strength of his earlier flying training. In this third book of their series on Luftwaffe Secret projects the authors have found some 140 aircraft that were proposed and/or developed for military use by the various German companies. The war years, for Germany were accompanied by great leaps in engine design.

A varied range of projects are revealed, including the Kampfzerstorer (multi-purpose combat aircraft), multi-purpose and fast bombers, explosive carrying aircraft designed to attack other aircraft, air to air ramming vehicles, bomb carrying gliders and towed fighters and airborne weapons and special devices such as cannons & much more.

Aircraft & Spacecraft: General Interest. For those who are interested in this subject area, this book, together with the two other volumes of this series, provides an excellent general survey about the thoughts of the German aviation industry during WWII. Many design features can be recognized in later American, British and Sowjet developments. For those enthusiasts interested in aeronautical history this book is very exciting.

This series has proven indispensable for historians and notably for modelers, whose imaginations are fired up by these revelations.

This volume gives an idea of how wide-ranging were the Nazi plans and ideas. They spread themselves so wide that they, thankfully, overstepped their ability to produce. Without some focus on the tasks at hand, they were off in a hundred different directions. The authors have, with all three volumes, shown the advanced thinking coming out of Germany. But they also show the bureaus doing scattered if effective work. These are worth having not only to see what they had planned, but also to show a national leadership leaping and bounding here and there trying to solve problems by bringing new production as the solution. These books are worth having.

Mr's Herwig and Rode, an excellent work on the topic. I found this book to be very informative, had interesting and rare photos, the illustrations and line drawings were excellent, and it was easy to read. There were some items discussed that I had never heard of, namely the "Flammelwerfer" or flamethrower on the rear of an aircraft. All in all, I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject. A truly super job!

so good!!

A beautiful, heavy, cofee-table volume with excellent format, text, and illustrations. A very useful and informative book on all sorts of "exotics" submitted to the Luftwaffe 1939-1945. A joy to own.

This book is worth every cent! Yet another wonderful addition to the "Secret Projects" series with loads of information on virtually unknown German projects from the Second World War. The three-view drawings, photographs, illustrations and information are well done. What's more amazing is that many of the projects made it to the prototype stage and were planned for production and service!

The International Resin Modellers Association at [...]uses this series to find new projects for model kits in 1/72 scale. For this reason I purchase each volume as it comes out! Hopefully they'll do more in the series on additional nations.

In this third book of their series on Luftwaffe Secret projects the authors have found some 140 aircraft that were proposed and/or developed for military use by the various German companies. The war years, for Germany were accompanied by great leaps in engine design. The engines of the ME-262 jet fighter, the rocket engine of the ME-163, the V-1 Buzz bombs pulse jet engine and improved traditional engines were all becoming available for new air frame designs.

Further experience on the battlefield had also brought a greater understanding of the needs for new aircraft designs. The German companies responded with a series of designs. Many of these designs look surprisingly like the designs proposed by American and British companies during the early 1950's as these kinds of new engines were becoming available over here. In one case the comparison is so close that there is a picture of a Junkers 1941 ground attack aircraft and a photograph of an American A-10 Warthog on facing pages.

Many of the other aircraft proposed, especially by Blohn and Voss are so goofy looking that I'm reminded of the old saying, "if it looks good it will fly good." In the case of Blohm & Voss, it's apparently the other way around. Reports that I've seen say that their planes fly well, in spite of how goofy they look.

A book to be read a couple of times and to serve as the basis for a lot of conversation with other airplane buffs.

Page 7 of this book contains a remarkable Publisher's Note, in which the publisher acknowledges the efforts of translator Ted Oliver (for this book was originally written in German) for his efforts to improve on the original version and the addition of "commentary on the author's erroneous text repeated from sources known to be incorrect or speculative." It must be almost unique to have such a statement in the foreword of a book.

There still is a lot of interesting material in this book, including many fascinating reproductions of original German drawings. But the text is took skimpy, and too much space is devoted to often speculative artwork. This book creates an appetite for more, but one is left feeling dissatisfied and in doubt about the validity of what one has just read.

I don't regret buying this; it is a book worth having. But compared to Tony Buttler's really excellent series on British Secret Projects (which is, that is true, rather harder to digest) this is the work of a dilettante.
Hardback-with dust jacket-glossy paper-165 B/W photos-8 color photos- 73 B/W side view drawings- 109 schematic drawings and 141 color artist renditions. Also has three pages of German words and abbreviations connected with these projects. Hope this helps. CAP
