Heinkel He 162 "Volksjager": Last Ditch Effort by the Luftwaffe


Heinkel He 162 "Volksjager": Last Ditch Effort by the Luftwaffe Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The primary objective of this source edition is to provide readers with original documents, allowing them to form their own impression of the development, manufacture and operation of the Heinkel He 162. By linking this accumulated data with the historical situation of those times, we hope to have facilitated a more objective assessment of the Volksjager project.For the purposes of this book, around 200 file documents were selected from a multitude of material on the Heinkel He 162 and reproduced in their original state. Complementing them are some 140 photographs, some of them unpublished hitherto, 50 scale drawings, 30 color plates and innumerable citations from contemporary documents, teleprints, orders, lectures, reviews and intelligence reports.To make orientation easy, documents and illustrations are arranged in chapters that follow the historic pass off: Project, development of the Heinkel He 162, manufacturing of the Volksjaeger, in action within the Luftwaffe and allied war booty are the most important topics. For the first time we achieved to break down the production and delivery numbers of the Heinkel He 162. Most of the original documents are not translated, but discussed in the text. A German-English glossary helps to understand the content of those original files.Rounding off the publication is a comprehensive annex giving details of propulsion units, camouflage schemes, armament, the cockpit, plus the various versions of the Heinkel He 162. An index of individuals, place names and subjects and a list of sources and literature, both covering several pages, enables to work scientifically with our Source Edition Heinkel He 162 Volksjaeger: Last-Ditch Effort of the Luftwaffe.returncharacterreturncharacter returncharacterreturncharacter REVIEWS returncharacterreturncharacter...a unique glimpse into the war time attitude and capability of the armament industry inside of Germany.
