Description

Featuring over one hundred rare and distinctive contemporary photographs from private collections and archives, this valuable addition to the Luftwaffe at War Series is a fully illustrated guide to the formative years of the Ju 87 dive-bomber which dominated the opening campaigns of World War II. Covering the German conquest of Poland, the Norwegian campaign, operations against Allied shipping, the invasion of the Low Countries and France, and the initial phase of the Battle of Britain, this lavishly illustrated book is the first of several in the series to cover this famous aircraft.

Effective use of the Ju 87 dive-bomber was one of the major features of German Blitzkrieg and this aircraft, more than any other, has come to typify the concept of lightning war. Working in potent harmony with the Panzers on the ground, it revolutionized warfare and dictated new rules both for war on land and war in the air.
