Nazi War Plane
The 8-1/2 x 9-1/4 inch, 192 page book covers the process of the development of modern German military aircraft from the beginning of the Third Reich by examining foreign aircraft such as the Italian Macchi M72, and then looking at various improvements in wing and fuselage construction. It shows wind tunnels, and explains how draftsmen put the first designs on paper. It talks about aerodynamics, and the internal components of any modern plane.

 Looking back at the photos in this book today, the German aviation industry stood in stark contrast to the American aviation industry in that very few or no women are pictured.

A rare book, in very good used condition.
