Item description for Helicopters of the Third Reich -Luftwaffe Classic 10 (Luftwaffe Classics) by Steve Coates & Jean-Christophe Carbonel...

Describes the development and use of helicopters by Germany, from the pre-World War II years to their deployment by the Luftwaffe.

Publishers Description
9 x 12 224 pgs 15 color & 360+ b&w photos 70+ line drawings index bibliography The result of 15 years research, this book is the first comprehensive account of the development of auto-gyros and helicopters in Germany during the period 1930-1945. It sheds much light on an area of considerable aeronautical achievement, which has until now been unjustly neglected.German progress in this field has been overshadowed by developments in other areas. Yet by the end of World War II, despite minimal funding, lukewarm official support and bitter inter-service rivalries, the Germans were, undoubtedly, technologically way ahead of their American counterparts in the development of rotating wing aircraft. This book, which will become the definitive work on the subject, is fully illustrated throughout with many photos which are believed to have been unpublished until now.

Truly Outstanding  May 22, 2006
This is an outstandingly well researched book on the somewhat obscure but very important helicopter developments conducted in Germany prior to and during WW2. The author has painstakingly gathered and assembled information from various and sundry sources, including individuals involved in these developments, to present a thorough exposition of the world's first practical helicopters.

Fifty stars for this book!
