Description - Stuka Spearhead by Peter C. Smith
This superb illustrated series books charts the rise and fall of the German Air Force from 1939 to 1945. Each volume makes use of over a hundred rare photographs, many of them taken by Luftwaffe personnel, to bring history to life and record both the men and the aircraft they flew. The Ju 87 Stuka dive-bomber dominated the opening campaigns of World War II. It was a primary weapon of German Blitzkrieg tactics and the concept of lightning warfare. Together with the panzer, it transformed air and land warfare, with countries falling in days and weeks, rather than after campaigns lasting years. With more than 100 photographs and detailed commentary Stuka Spearhead profiles the various models and infamous tactics of these deadly dive-bombers from the conquest of Poland and the Norwegian campaign, through the invasion of the Low Countries, to the fall of France and the evacuation at Dunkirk. AUTHOR: Peter C. Smith is well-known to aviation and maritime history readers. He has written over 67 previously published books. Amongst these are Skua, Destroyer Leader, Into the Minefields and Naval Warfare in the English Channel 1939-1945, all published by Pen & Sword. SELLING POINTS: Photographic guide to the Luftwaffe during World War II With a detailed introduction by an aviation specialist Reveals the formidable power of the JU-87 Stuka Looks at the men who flew the aircraft and their ground crews Integrated b/w photos, 8 pages colour
