Luftwaffe over America: The Secret Plans to Bomb the United States in World War II based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
As an avid reader about WWII and especially the Luftwaffe and Nazi secret projects, I was excited about this book, and the concept (which, historically with a few changes by Nazi leadership) would have changed the world we live in today. The book itself seemed 95% about technical descriptions of the various types of aircraft in operation or under development. It was much of the same thing over and over: "this design will have XX range with XX payload, but requires the XX engines which are not available and was therefore shelved by the RLM". The other 5% was fascinating in describing some of the alternative methods envisioned to attack America (and other global targets). So I was a bit disappointed overall as a purist on the topic, but perhaps for someone new to the subject it may well be a very interesting read. There were some unique photos I had not seen before, I do wish the graphics and photos had be spaced around in the text (rather than bunched together), especially when describing a certain design.
Gift to an old WWII enthusiast. He didn't seem disappointed.
