Luftwaffe at War: German Rocket Planes/Manfred Griehl. Greenhill Books. Softcover. First edition 2000. Out of print. Condition: As new. ISBN 1853674044
This book is part of an exciting series that covers every aspect of the Luftwaffe during World War II, making use of over a hundred rare and valuable photographs, many of them taken by Luftwaffe personnel, to bring history to life and record both the men and the aircraft they flew.
Towards the end of the war the Germans introduced rocket planes that were far faster than any aircraft flown by the Allies. This volume examines the appearance, markings and operational role of these revolutionary aeroplanes that included the Me 163B (Komet), Me 163BV1, Me 163AV4 and the Me 262.
