Description - Secret Wings of WW II by Lance Cole
There are many myths and legends surrounding the advanced German aeronautical technology of the Second World War. There are also facts and proven events. Yet within these stories and behind these facts lie conspiracy theories, mistaken assumptions and denials that seem to contradict the evidence. So what really happened? How far ahead were the German scientists? And, of even greater interest, why and how? There have been other books about advanced German wartime aeronautics, yet few authors have fully examined the detail of the designs and their relevance to the fighter and bomber legends of the 1950s and '60s, let alone the current crop of military and civil all-wing or blended-wing aircraft. This book charts the story from it origins, through current-day innovations and beyond, into the all-wing future of tomorrow. SELLING POINTS: An enthralling investigation into German aeronautical technology during the Second World War. Explores the many myths, legends and popular conspiracy theories at play, and attempts to uncover the truth of precisely what happened during this pivotal time of technological development in Nazi Germany. Penned by the revered historian and author Lance Cole, the book is also supplemented by a selection of engaging black and white images. 25 black and white illustrations
