Print depicts the high altitude version of the Fw 190 that had an in-line, water-cooled engine allowing it to fight at over 450 mph at 22,000 feet.

On this day, it chases off a P-51 Mustang as an Me 262 takes to the skies. Limited edition 16"x 11½" print is signed and numbered by the artist.

Luftwaffe at War Series Vol. 6
Softbound Book


Spick. This photo-essay, one of a 21-volume series, covers every aspect of the Luftwaffe in World War II, examining the men and the aircraft they flew as it charts the rise and fall of this mighty force. This softbound, 72 pg. volume contains 105 B&W photos along with 8 pages of color and measures 7"x 10".

In 1943, with increasingly effective USAAF and RAF bombing raids against Germany taking their toll on the German war effort, the Luftwaffe was forced to direct its scarce resources at the Western Front and to keep its attention there for the next two years.

With over 100 rare photographs, this book shows the fighters that were pulled out of Norway, the Balkans, Russia and Italy, the fighter-bombers and bombers sent to attack British targets, the planes that launched the V-1 bombs, and the first jet and rocket-powered aircraft introduced at the end of the war. From the conventional Bf 109 and Fw 190 to the unusual and unique aircraft introduced into service in the dying days of the war, such as the Ar 234 jet, the Ju 287 bomber and the Me 262 and He 162, the full range of Luftwaffe types is illustrated and analysed in vivid and absorbing detail.

Focke Wulf 190, 1943-1945
Luftwaffe at War Series Vol. 13
Softbound WWII History Book.

Defending the Reich. Jessen. This photo-essay, one of a 21-volume series, covers every aspect of the Luftwaffe in World War II, examining the men and the aircraft they flew as it charts the rise and fall of this mighty force. This softbound, 72 pg. volume contains 102 B&W photos along with 8 pages of color and measures 7"x 10".

In the spring of 1942 the first of the Allied 1,000 bomber raids was launched against the Third Reich. From then on, Germany was pounded by night and by day by a vast armada of Allied aircraft. With a fighter force stretched to capacity by war in Russia and 24-hour defense of the Reich, the Luftwaffe relied on skill, ingenuity and the excellence of their planes to counter the Allied threat.

A key element of that German defense, both during the day and at night, was the Fw 190. A rugged, well armed and reliable machine, and a lethal one in the right hands, the Fw 190 fought Allied bombers right up to the end of the war. This book covers the Fw 190 and its variants in the crucial years of 1943, 1944 and 1945 and presents rare photographs of the planes, their crews and their combat missions.

The Luftwaffe Over FinlandThe Luftwaffe Over Finland

Luftwaffe at War Series Vol. 18
Softbound Aircraft German Historical Book.

Stenman. This photo-essay, one of a 21-volume series, covers every aspect of the Luftwaffe in World War II, examining the men and the aircraft they flew as it charts the rise and fall of this mighty force. This softbound, 72 pg. volume contains 110 B&W photos along with 8 pages of color and measures 7"x 10".

This volume depicts the Germans' use of aircraft in Finland and Norway to maintain their campaign against the Soviet Union. The Fins were active allies of the Germans in their war against the Soviets and allowed the Luftwaffe considerable freedom in its operations over Russia. Although conditions in the north were harsh, the Luftwaffe quickly adapted to the region and carried out a series of key operations over Russia between 1941 and 1944.

Here, you'll see the men and the aircraft used in this campaign, mostly from Luftflotte 1 and Luftflotte 5. Their fighter units flew Messerschmitt Bf 109s and Focke Wulf Fw 190s and the bomber units were equipped with Junkers Ju 87 dive bombers and Heinkel He 111s. Close-range reconnaissance units flew Henschel Hs 126s, Messerschmitt Bf 109s and Focke Wulf Fw 189s, while the long-range units had Junkers Ju 88s and 188s, Messerschmitt Bf 109s, and Dornier Do 215s. In addition, coastal patrol units and transport units were also involved in this critical part of World War II.
