    DescriptionThis book offers a unique and highly detailed insight into the workings of one of Nazi Germany's main wartime aircraft production centers-the famous Messerschmitt works at Regensburg as well as the neighboring airfield at Obertraubling. It is illustrated with many rare German photographs of aircraft construction, test flying, and the visits and meetings of key Nazi and Luftwaffe personnel at Regensburg, most of which have not been seen before. Despite being the target of heavy U.S. bombing raids between 1943 and 1945, the plant produced 170 Messerschmitt Bf 109Es, 779 Bf 110s, and 34 Me 210s prior to being attacked. Production reached its peak in October 1944, when it built 755 Bf 109 G/Ks out of an annual total of 6,318 such aircraft. A further 1,074 fighters were produced in 1945.
