Description - Junkers Ju 87 by John Weal

The cranked-winged Ju 87 Stuka dive-bomber symbolized the might of Nazi Germany in the early years of World War II. Although vulnerable to enemy fighters due to its modest speed and lack of manoeuvrability, it nevertheless took a heavy toll of the Allied forces in Western Europe. This volume covers the story of Junkers' quintessential dive-bomber in operational service from its early days within the Legion Condor to its less than successful missions against Britain in the summer of 1940. The book features first hand combat accounts from Stuka crews of the period, explaining the training and tactics employed, as well as describing just what the JU 87 was like to fly. Full unit organizational strengths are also included in appendices.
