Me 163 ROCKET INTERCEPTOR. Volume Two.
Following years of detailed research, this is the first volume in a two part work on the Luftwaffe's legendary Messerschmitt Me163 rocket-powered interceptor. The authors have unearthed incredible new documentary material and previously unpublished photographs and have received co-operation from many former pilots who flew this unique and daunting aircraft. This book focuses on the evolution, design and development of tailless and rocket-powered aircraft during the years leading up to World War 2 as well as the subsequent development of the Me163 by the specialist test unit, Erprobungskommando 16. Accompanied by superb colour artwork by leading aviation artist, Tom Tullis, and many technical illustrations, this work will undoubtedly be recognised as the standard reference on the subject for years to come.
