From the cover: A comprehensive survey of every type of aircraft and engine designed, built or flown by Junkers, from the first biplane and diesel piston engine to the final experimental types of jet fighters, bombers and engines. Not only a thorough history of the ground-breaking technology, this volume also examines the development and service histories of each type and the pioneering human story behind them all.
From the Junkers J1 through such important types as the F13, W33, Ju 52 tri-motor transport and airliner, Ju 87 stuka divebomber and Ju 88 medium bomber to the giants, jet bombers and fighters, Junkers Flugzeugwerke pioneered much in twentieth-century aviation, including all-metal construction, airliners and the launching of numerous airlines, warplanes for both world wars and record flights such as the first East-West crossing of the Atlantic. Although Junkers aircraft and engines played a major role in the Second World War, they were equally prolific in civilian areas when conditions allowed. Some of the biggest aircraft of the time were Junkers products, while Junkers Motoren-bau also produced some of the most popular engines of their day
Replete with many line drawings, data tables and unpublished photographs, this is an impressively complete source of information on the German aviation legend.
