102 photographs & 8 pages in color & 7 x 10 & From its maiden flight on June 1, 1939, the Fw 190 V1 fighter-bomber was destined to become a feared weapon of the Luftwaffe. Its superior handling and rugged construction made it a maneuverable fighter capable of absorbing heavy punishment. It was used to patrol northern France, to fly hit-and-run raids on English ports and ground-attack missions on the Eastern front, and to defend German cities against heavy bombers. This volume covers the different versions of the plane as they
appeared in various theaters of the war, along with the pilots who carved a name for themselves in the "Butcher Bird." Morten Jessen is
an aviation historian who specializes in Luftwaffe fighters. He lives in Copenhagen, Denmark.
