Item description for Me 262, Volume One by J. Richard Smith, Eddie J. Creek, K. A. Merrick, Mike Norton, Stephen Ransom, Jurgen Rosenstock & Gunter Sengfelder...

Due to demand, this is a revised reprint of the first volume of J. Richard Smith's and Eddie J. Creek's exhaustive study of the Messerschmitt Me 262, the world's first operational military jet aircraft. This edition contains updated technical drawings, revised and corrected text and photographic amendments. These internationally acclaimed authors have drawn on more than thirty years of detailed research. Here, for the first time, is the full story of the concept, design, troubled development and contested operational deployment of possibly one of the most enigmatic war machines ever built, from its evolution to its eventual appearance with the Luftwaffe's first operational jet trials units. The story is complemented by a portrait of the early life of Willy Messerschmitt as well as a detailed study of the pioneering German work in the field of turbojet engine design and development, together with more than fifty high-precision technical scale drawings of the prototype aircraft by Arthur Bentley. An essential requirement for both students of early jet aircraft development and all those with an interest in the history of military aviation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Me 262, Volume One?

ME 262 Vol II  Aug 13, 2008
Excellent book which is easy to read and follow. Covers all aspects of the various ME 262 variants and their features. Definitely purchase Vol 1 and 3 and 4 to complete the series.
This book is for any Me262 fan  May 7, 2003
This is the second volume of a four volume set. All four volumes will set you back over $150.00. If you are a fan of this plane as I am, It is worth every penny. The first volume covers the genesis of the plane. The second volume examines armament and it's entry into the German war effort. Filled with excellent photos, color plates, and technical drawings, this book is a delight to read. But If you are not a nut on the subject, you may find it is too much information.
This four volume set is really for the person who wants the nitty gritty about the plane. If you want an overview of the plane there are plenty of excellent books (Me262: Arrow to the future, to name one) that are out there.
