Reviews - What do customers think about Luftwaffe: 1946 Technical Manual (Luftwaffe 1946 Tech Manual)?

Not What I Expected  Aug 10, 2006
As someone who is endlessly fascinated by "secret" German World War II projects, technologies and weapons that may have changed the course of history if the Third Reich had pursued them more energetically, I had high hopes for this book. Having previously purchased several of David Myhra's books, such as "Sanger--Germany's Orbital Rocket Bomber of World War II" and "Secret Aircraft Designs of the Third Reich," I expected "Luftwaffe: 1946 Technical Manual" to be similar. I also expected it to at least vaguely resemble the excellent "Luft46" website, which features exquisite digital renderings of hundreds of unbuilt German World War II aircraft designs.

I was, however, disappointed.

"Luftwaffe: 1946 Technical Manual" is poorly organized, poorly written, filled with poor-quality graphics (white-on-black, many of them, and virtually unreadable) and technical errors. While it may resonate with a certain audience, if you are a serious student of history--even history that never happened--I'd recommend giving it a pass.

Much of the slim volume consists simply of tabulations of characteristics of various "secret" aircraft, with little or no explanation of their genesis, status or historical context. I was surprised to find that some of "Luftwaffe: 1946 Technical Manual" is a comic-book story about the "secret weapons" that it purports to describe. I am not averse to comics in general--the old "Sky Masters of the Space Force" strip is one of the things that inspired me to become an aerospace engineer--but I did not expect to find comics in this book. In fact, I have a sense that perhaps this volume is actually intended as a companion guide to a computer game. Again, "not that there's anything wrong with that," but you should be aware of what you will get if you are considering buying this book. If you are looking for a historically and technically accurate account of aircraft that Germany MIGHT have deployed had World War II continued into 1946, this book is not the place to find it.
