Description

The Stukas blazed a trail of destruction across the Russian steppe as a crucial element of Operation Barbarossa, Hitler's ambitious gamble to defeat and conquer the Soviet Union. Acting as flying artillery to the armies of the Third Reich from the opening shots to the final destruction of the Reich itself, the Stukas flew in support of the ground forces above the clash of two colossal empires.

This valuable addition to the on-going Luftwaffe at War series captures the many roles adopted by the Ju 87 in this demanding theatre - from dive-bomber to tank-buster - and the varieties of plane type. With over one hundred rare and unusual photographs, Stukas Over the Steppe illustrates the Stuka's courageous contribution, in both attack and defence, to Germany's ill-fated war in the east.
