This is a major piece of research by a group of German authors, some of whom were involved at the same time, into the establishment and activities of government flight-test centers in Germany from its resumption of flight testing in the 1920s until the end of World War II. Their work will be of outstanding interest to students of World War II and the Luftwaffe. The authors begin with the secret testing in cooperation with the Red Army in the 1920s/30s. The book addresses the major locations where testing was conducted, including Johannisthal, Lipetsk, Rechlin, Travemunde, Tarnewitz and Peenemunde-West. Other less well known locations including early experimentations at Doberitz and Danzig are also covered. The book draws on an extensive collection of photographs and documents, many taken from previously unpublished sources. There are also comprehensive listings of the aircraft used, with such details as Werknummern, markings, engines. There are similarly detailed lists of personnel and the various research and test units.There is still enormous interest in the Luftwaffe and especially in the experimental aircraft, which were produced and tested in Germany during the period of the Third Reich. This book will appeal directly to this market and achieve the same success of other Midland titles dealing with this area of aviation history.
