Description

In the spring of 1942 the first of the Allied 1,000 bomber raids was launched against the Third Reich. From then, until the end of the war, Germany was pounded by night and by day by a vast armada of Allied aircraft. With a fighter force stretched to capacity by war in Russia and 24-hour defence of the Reich, the Luftwaffe relied on skill, ingenuity and the excellence of their planes to counter the Allied threat.

A key element of the German defences, both during the day and at night, was the FW 190. A rugged, well-armed and reliable machine, and a lethal one in the right hands, the FW 190 fought Allied bombers right up to the end of the war. This superb book covers the FW 190 and its variants in the crucial years of 1943, 1944 and 1945 and presents rare photographs of the planes, their crews and their combat missions.
