Description - Stukas Over the Steppe 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 Steppe captures the many roles adopted by these famous dive-bombers as they blasted a path across Eastern Europe.

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.
