    One thought on “Wings of the Luftwaffe”

    1. Neat book by an RAF pilot whose job at the end of the war was to go around test piloting various German aircraft. The text is his thoughts/opinions on how the aircraft performed. Some data he got wrong in terms of what things were used for by the Germans but this is a minor quibble and understandable given the time frame.
