Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Arado Ar-234 was the first purpose-built jet bomber. Although the prototypes were completed largely by the end of 1941, delays in the supply of the engines meant that it was not until July 1943 that the type first flew. By the end of the war, more than 220 of the type had been constructed, although only a small proportion of these had actually entered service. The first of Midland Publishing's new 'Military Aircraft in Detail' series provides a detailed history of the development and operation of the Ar-234, supported by many photos, line drawings, and speciallly commissioned artworks. The camouflage schemes applied to the aircraft are also examined: many of the illustrations are previously unpublished, making the book an essential addition to the limited range of publications available on this important aircraft type. Aimed specifically at the aviation modeler and those interested in the history of the Luftwaffe, this first volume gets the new Military Aircraft in Detail series off to a good start and adds greatly to our knowledge of one of the most advanced aircraft which saw service during World War II.
