[From laid in publisher's News Release] Many advanced-jet aircraft, including a "flying wing, " were in development or production in Germany during early 1945. Hitler had hoped that the extraordinary new warplanes would turn the tide of World War II, but it was too little, too late. The story of the many radical, futuristic German jets is fully described and illustrated in GERMAN JETS OF WORLD WAR TWO. Messerschmitt, Heinkel, Henschel, Junkers and Focke Wulf were just some of the top German companies working feverishly to produce new high-speed attack planes that would be able to destroy American and British heavy bombers. Several innovative jets, notably the twin-engined ME-262, were produced and flew successfully in combat. But the Allied bombing raids were so destructive to German production facilities, many new jets had to be manufactured underground in the Bavarian Alps. This authoritative book contains many photographs never published before, including action shots of German jets in combat. Some of the jets must have had merit, because the Russians seized several German designers after V-E day.
