About the book:

German aircraft of World War II continue to be of great interest in Europe and North America because they were some of the most successful and unusual warplanes of the 20th century. The photographs in this book include secret shots of captured and deserting aircraft, aerial reconnaissance photographs, photographs obtained by Allied agents in occupied Europe, and captured German photographs. The background information includes a brief history of how the plane actually performed in combat, illustrated with anecdotes about thrilling missions. The text is drawn from declassified British intelligence files - thick dossiers that were gleaned from MI6, OSS and SOE agents in the field, from RAF and USAAF air crew combat reports, from POW interrogations and from coded German message interceptions. The book's extensive introduction also offers a history of Allied air intelligence, which grew from a handful of staff members to an efficient information-gathering machine that often knew many details of enemy aircraft before they had even become operational. The text also has details of some of the most exotic aircraft of World War II, including the He 162 "people's fighter" and the Me 264 "Amerika" bomber.
