Book by Roba JeanLouis


German's series of rapid conquests in the first half of the Second World War meant that the Luftwaffe was able to operate large numbers of captured military aircraft. This book takes a chronological look at the fate of these aircraft, from the pre-war acquisitions in Czechoslovakia, to the massive windfalls in France and Italy and the smaller but still significant number of British and American aircraft forced down intact in occupied Europe.

The chapters differ in character, falling into two broad groups. The first deals with those occasions when large numbers of military aircraft were captured by the Germans as a result of military victories on land, most notably in Czechoslovakia, Poland, France and the Soviet Union, and in a slightly different context in Italy. In these chapters the aircraft are dealt with on a type-by-type basis. In many cases large numbers of aircraft were taken over directly by the Luftwaffe or given to one of German's allies.

The second type of chapter looks at those periods when small numbers of Allied aircraft fell into German hands in a random manner (mostly British and American aircraft). These chapters are more photographic in nature - none of these types of aircraft were captured in large enough numbers to be used in a conventional way by the Luftwaffe, and so Roba concentrates instead on the fate of individual aircraft.

The focus is very firmly on the aircraft and where they went, rather than what they did once they got there, so KG 200, the special unit that operated many captured Allied aircraft is mentioned, but its exploits are not detailed. The book is very lavishly illustrated, with one large or two smaller photographs on the vast majority of pages. There is something rather chilling about some of these pictures, which show familiar Allied aircraft in Luftwaffe insignia. --History of
