This brilliant new book offers a unique and highly detailed insight into the workings of one of Nazi Germany’s main wartime aircraft production centres – the famous Messerschmitt works at Regensburg. The Regensburg factory was responsible for the output of some of Germany’s most important military aircraft during World War 2, and the factory reached its peak in October 1944 when it built 755 Bf 109s.
Drawing on rare company documents and first-hand accounts from factory test-pilots and former Luftwaffe and Messerschmitt personnel, the author explores the factory’s origins and history. A rare glimpse into the wartime role of this famous factory, complemented by an unmatchable collection of German photographs, most of which will not have been seen by a British audience, this is essential reading for aviation enthusiasts worldwide.
