Item description for Zerstorer-Luftwaffe Fighter Bombers and Destroyers 1936-1940 Volume 1 (Luftwaffe Colours) by John J. Vasco...

The Luftwaffe Zerstorer units, equipped with the twin-engined Me 110, were first used to great effect in the escort and air superiority roles against the Polish Air Force in 1939. Later these units took part in the occupation of Norway and Denmark, and during the Blitzkrieg against the west in 1940, when their numbers were expanded with the addition of new units. Considered by G˜ring to be among the elite of the Luftwaffe, the Zerst˜rer were deployed in the Battle of Britain, in the Balkans, North Africa and in the East, where Zerst˜rergruppen accounted for significant numbers of Russian aircraft destroyed on the ground and in the air. This is the first of two volumes covering the history of the Zerst˜rer squadrons between 1939 and 1945. Each volume adopts the traditional Classic approach of a detailed narrative matched with a comprehensive selection of photos, many previously unpublished, and specially prepared color artworks.

Reviews - What do customers think about Zerstorer-Luftwaffe Fighter Bombers and Destroyers 1936-1940 Volume 1 (Luftwaffe Colours)?

Luftwaffe  Oct 20, 2007
With so much info on the luftwaffe this one could have been better. earlier versions of the Me110 could have been covered more instead of so many of the "C" version...
Tales of Messerschmitt's Twin-Engined "Destroyer"  Feb 21, 2006
John Vasco, an acknowledged expert on Luftwaffe fighter-bomber ops, and Classic Colours have combined to produce this nicely done history on the development and first combats of Messerschmitt's twin-engined destroyer. (Volume two which covers the 1941-45 period is in the works).

Though much was expected of the Bf 110 - Goering thought of the Zerstorer units as his elite - realistically the twin-engined craft could never compete with modern, single-engined opponents. Nevertheless in the attacks on Poland, Scandinavia and France, Bf 110 crews turned in credible performances in air combat and ground attacks. Used as both a fighter and fighter bomber (with Erpr. Gr. 210) in the Battle of Britain, the 110's inadequacies were brought painfully to light with various ZG units suffering heavy losses.

Vasco's book follows the Classic Colours template with many first-hand accounts of air combats, dozens of rare wartime photos, 14 color profiles by Fernando Estanislau and several color photos as well.

If you're a fan of Messerschmitt's twin-engined destroyer, you'll enjoy this book. Nicely written and well illustrated, it's a winner!
