The Junkers Ju 88 was one of the most important tactical bombers of the World War Two era. Its beginnings went back to the mid-1930s, and it flew in Luftwaffe operational service from late 1939 until the latter stages of the war. Built in a number of specific versions and sub-types, the Ju 88 proved to be a versatile multi-purpose design that fulfilled the bombing role with distinction and was also successfully adapted for other unrelated tasks. These included use as a long-range fighter, night fighting and reconnaissance. Some examples were even used in the late-war period as explosives-equipped flying bombs. With radar installed, the type became one of the most significant nocturnal fighters of the conflict. Underlining its importance, the Ju 88 served on all fronts where the Luftwaffe was operational during World War Two and was built in significant numbers. The type also flew with a number of export customers. Containing over 150 photographs, this book tells the fascinating story of the Ju 88, from its creation through to the end of its operational service.

The photography, pictures, diagrams and maps are just brilliant, lovely and clear, concise and interesting.

I could see these book being of use to a number of people such as the person who likes his information in depth to the person who enjoys model making. I would certainly recommend this book to those who want their history with more detail.

The History Fella

Interesting text along with a fine collection of archive images, illustrating the bomber, torpedo bomber, reconnaissance, nightfighter, heavy gun mounting versions, and fittings such as the radar aerials and cable cutters which were all mounted on this successful multi-role aircraft. Good value for money and an interesting reference thanks to both the text and the photo collection.
