Description - Stukas Over the Mediterranean, 1940-1945 by Peter C. Smith

This enthralling pictorial guide reveals the formidable power of one of the most feared warplanes of all time. The Ju 87 Stuka 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, Stukas over the Mediterranean examines the role of German and Italian Ju 87s in such diverse campaigns as the attack on Yugoslavia, the battle for Crete and operations by the night flying squadrons. AUTHOR: Peter C. Smith is well-known to aviation and maritime history readers. He has written over 60 books including 'Stuka, Destroyer Leader,' 'Into the Minefields' and 'Naval Warfare in the English Channel 1939 1945', all published by Pen & Sword. SELLING POINTS: This superb illustrated series charts the rise and fall of the German Air Force from 1939 to 1945. Each volume makes use of over a hundred rare and valuable photographs, many of them taken by Luftwaffe personnel, to bring history to life and record both the men and the aircraft they flew. Photographic guide to the Luftwaffe during World War II With a detailed introduction by an aviation specialist Reveals the formidable power of one of the most feared and famous warplanes of all time - the Ju 87 Stuka Looks at the men who flew the aircraft and their ground crews Includes images not usually found in other sources Integrated b/w photos, 8 pages colour
