Aircraft of the Luftwaffe  1935  1945

One of the most significant innovations in modern warfare has been the appearance and development of air power, a technology which demanded technical and financial investment on a whole new scale and which ultimately changed the fundamental nature of war itself. This book covers the history and development of the German air force from 1935 to 1945, with descriptions and illustrations of almost all of the Luftwaffe’s airplanes, including fighters, jet fighters, dive-bombers, ground attackers, medium and heavy bombers, jet bombers, seaplanes, flying boats and carrier planes, transport and gliders, reconnaissance and training aircrafts, helicopters, and many futuristic projects and other rarities.

Secret Weapons

Deep in the bunkers of Nazi Germany, many of the world's top scientists worked to create a new generation of war winning super-weapons. A few of these, such as jet aircraft and the V2 rocket, became realities at the end of the war, others never made it off the drawing-board. Written by noted research scientist, Brian Ford, this exciting book charts the history of secret weapons development by all the major powers during the war, from British radar to Japanese ray-guns, and explains the impact that these developments eventually had on the outcome of World War II. Ford also takes a look at the weapons that never made it to development stage, as well as the more radical plans, such as the idea of turning Hitler into a woman with hormone treatment.

Antarctica and the Secret Space Program

David Childress, popular author and star of the History Channel show Ancient Aliens, brings us the incredible tale of Nazi submarines and secret weapons in Antarctica and elsewhere. He looks into the strange life and death of Rudolf Hess, as well as the mystery of James Forrestal and the secret group called MJ-12. He examines Operation Highjump led by Admiral Richard Byrd in 1947 and the battle that he apparently had in Antarctica with flying saucers. Through “Operation Paperclip,” the Nazis infiltrated aerospace companies, banking, media, and the US government, including NASA and the CIA after WWII. He reveals that the Nazis had built secret bases in a variety of places during WWII, including Greenland, the Canary Islands, Tibet and Antarctica. Childress discusses the secret U-boat fleet that patrolled the Atlantic and Antarctic Oceans for decades after the war. He looks into the secret German space program and its flying disks and tubular aircraft; the secret technology involved, including anti-gravity propulsion technology; underground and under ice bases; strange things happening in South America; and secret bases on the Moon and Mars. Childress looks at the possible merger of Nazi assets in Antarctic with the Americans’ and the use of Antarctica as a space base for traffic to secret space stations in orbit and below the surface of the Moon. The author looks at military space programs such as Solar Warden, Lunex and Project Horizon. Does the US Space Force have a secret space program that maintains huge ships in orbit around the Earth and employs hundreds of astronauts as crew for these vehicles? Includes a 16-page color section.

Fighting Hitler s Jets

DIVFighting Hitler's Jets brings together in a single, character-driven narrative two groups of men at war: on one side, American fighter pilots and others who battled the secret “wonder weapons” with which Adolf Hitler hoped to turn the tide; on the other, the German scientists, engineers, and pilots who created and used these machines of war on the cutting edge of technology. Written by Robert F. Dorr, renowned author of Zenith Press titles Hell Hawks!, Mission to Berlin, and Mission to Tokyo, the story begins with a display of high-tech secret weapons arranged for Hitler at a time when Germany still had prospects of winning the war. It concludes with Berlin in rubble and the Allies seeking German technology in order to jumpstart their own jet-powered aviation programs. Along the way, Dorr expertly describes the battles in the sky over the Third Reich that made it possible for the Allies to mount the D-Day invasion and advance toward Berlin. Finally, the book addresses both facts and speculation about German weaponry and leaders, including conspiracy theorists’ view that Hitler escaped in a secret aircraft at the war’s end. Where history and controversy collide with riveting narrative, Fighting Hitler’s Jets furthers a repertoire that comprises some of the United States’ most exceptional military writing. /div

Ostfront

The Eastern Front was the decisive theatre of World War 2. On a 1,200-mile front from the Arctic Circle to the Caspian Sea, in baking summer heat and winter temperatures of -40.C, millions of men and women fought the most vital battle of the war. Had the Germans won in the East, a Nazi victory in World War 2 would have been almost inevitable. In 1941 the Germans suffered their first significant defeat at the gates of Moscow. Twelve months later their army was decisively defeated at Stalingrad. In April 1945 the Red Army stormed Berlin itself and ended the war in Europe. Hitler's flawed dream of conquest in the East brought about the end of the Thousand Year Reich, and all in little over a thousand days.

Junkers Aircraft   Engines 1913 to 1945

Examining in detail the output of one of Germany's most famous aircraft manufacturers, Junkers. With 3-view drawings, cut-aways, fine photographs and unsurpassed in-depth treatment of the design history of Junkers aircraft, this volume is the definitive history of a German engineering legend. Hugo Junkers was a leading pioneer of aviation, especially all-metal aircraft construction, and his name is associated with great aerodynamic and structural advances in engineering. His design and manufacturing bureau was responsible for some of the most distinctive and famous aircraft of the 20th century, including the terrifying Ju87 Stuka divebomber and the Ju88 bomber which battered London in the Blitz, but successful airliners and transports were also part of the Junkers roster over the course of its 30-year history.
