ID: 553932748

London 1971, Macdonald, First UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, , 8 1/2 x 11, VG/VG condition, ( very minor bump at head of spine ) glossy page stock, 128 pages, numerous photos, scale plans, and color a/c profiles. ........................................ A complete history of the German Luftwaffe's most famous fighter aircraft, from the skies over the Spanish Civil war 1936 thru WW 2 and its use after the War in the Israeli Air Force. The "Augsburg Eagle" was a fighting aircraft, but no ordinary warplane. It was perhaps the most famous of all single-seat fightersMesserschmitt's Bf 109. From its first appearance in Spanish skies it displayed all the characteristics of the true predatory bird, and for years its rakish contours, which endowed it with an air of ruthless efficiency, were virtually symbolic of the air power of Germany's Third Reich. .....................................................By any standard it was one of the most remarkable warplanes ever conceived, and one of the few to achieve truly legendary status. It was destined to be built in larger numbers than any combat aircraft before or since; it was to achieve a record for production longevity unlikely ever to be bettered by another fighter, and it outlived in service virtually all its principal opponents of World War II. ...................................................No warplane ever had a more adventurous career than did this "Eagle" from Augsburg; a career traced through all its vicissitudes and drama in this profusely illustrated book. No warplane is more assured off a place in aviation's metaphorical hall of fame than is the Messerschmitt Bf 109 that saw birth in Augsburg in 1934, met the first real challenge to its supremacy in the skies over Britain thirty years ago, and soldiered on in service into the late 'sixties.
