Product description

When it first appeared in the skies over France in late 1941, the pugnacious, radial-engine Focke Wulf Fw 190 represented a formidable and ominous foe to the RAF. Despite initial technical problems with the engine, as well as with the ailerons, elevators and undercarriage on the early A-1 and A-2 variants, the Fw 190 soon proved itself as a dependable fighter aircraft. This stunning new volume is the third book in a magnificent multi-volume series on this iconic aircraft- arguably the finest piston-engine fighter aircraft of World War 2.Continuing the story of the Fw 190, this beautifully illustrated book has over 650 photographs including those showing factory and construction, close ups of weapons and equipment, operational units as well as numerous facsimiles of Focke-Wulf handbook drawings. Color artwork is also included, plus an extensive selection of original manufacturer's technical drawings. This book is the product of years of study by two of the leading researchers into this complex aircraft which is creating the most complete and definitive work on the Fw 190 ever written. Ideal for historians and modellers alike, this volume is a must-have for every Luftwaffe enthusiast.

Author information

J. Richard Smith and Eddie J. Creek have been researching Luftwaffe aircraft for over forty years, publishing their first book, "German Aircraft of the Second World War," in 1972. After retiring as an architect in 1991, Eddie Creek established Classic Publications with Robert Forsyth. He again cooperated with Richard Smith in the production of an acclaimed four-volume history of the Me 262, published by Classic, and this was followed by several volumes on the Luftwaffe fighter and bomber units and their markings for Classic.
