About the Author

As a professional historical geographer with an all pervading interest in all things aeronautical, Richard Meredith brings a unique insight into the past realities of the wartime German Luftwaffe. Not only has he read about these aircraft and aviators, he has been fortunate in being able to actually own, fly and operate aircraft from the period. Over the last twenty-five years he has amassed over 3,000 flight hours on such types and is currently a Class Rating Instructor and Display Pilot. His personal military aviation library is extensive and consists of nearly 1,500 volumes many of which are of a German origin. With a passion for research and writing his academic qualifications include a BA (Honours) from Durham and an MSc from London.


Again, highly recommended and essential reading on the topic. * Flightpath Magazine *
The historical research is immense with the full series a collation of forty years of research, a one for the history buffs that's for sure which will surely be regarded as the go-to encyclopaedia on the Luftwaffe. * Air Modeller *
The full set of these volumes promises to provide a definitive work of reference. * Aeroplane Magazine *
Stunning photographs and a very readable commentary on this amazing concept. Not just a book for military enthusiasts, but also for students of foreign powers and their military endeavours. Stirring. * Books Monthly *
A useful resource for the model-maker or researcher is an explanation of aircraft tactical markings with drawings. Also diagrams of aircraft formations are included. * Scale Military Modelling International Magazine *
Anyone with an interest in the detail of the Second World War is going to find this book invaluable; the information contained within it is very comprehensive. As such, it comes highly recommended for anyone interested in the detail of the Luftwaffe. 4.5 stars. * Army Rumour Service *
This book should provide readers with a complete understanding of the early development of the Luftwaffe and how it grew with German militarisation in these inter war years. It is interesting to read how their involvement in the Spanish Civil War was to develop strategies going forward...Highly Recommended. * Britmodeller.com *
There is no doubt, however, that this is an impressive work and an incredibly valuable reference source, and I applaud the publisherwholeheartedly for doing those of us who are students of Luftwaffe history the good service of investing in its immensity. * The Aviation Historian Magazine *
