8 1/2 x 11, 390 b&w photosAircraft armament is very much an under-published subject area in which there is a growing interest. This is particularly true of air-dropped ammunition. This subject involves more than just bombs, rockets and a range of other weapons also come into this category. Combine this subject area with the Luftwaffe in World War II and you will have a book which is of great interest to historians and modelers alike and will also be of some practical value for artificers and personnel dealing with weapons systems in today's air forces.This book traces the development of German air-dropped ammunition, from the crude, 'aeronautical artillery', of World War I to the advanced remote-control bombs of World War II. Major topics include demolition bombs, incendiary bombs, special dropped ammunition, sea-dropping ammunition and dropping containers. A comprehensive illustrated listing catalogues information on 100 different bombs, 22 canisters and 50 of the most important bomb fuses.This is an unusual and innovative aviation title which will appeal to a wide readership in many areas of the aviation hobby.
