Descrizione articolo


This book is the first in a two-part comprehensive study of the development and operational history of the Junkers Ju 88, exploring the many variants of this famous and long-serving Luftwaffe multirole aircraft. The text is supported by several hundred rare photographs, manufacturer’s handbook data, scale line drawings, and specially commissioned color artwork. The work will represent the most comprehensive study of the Ju 88 in many years. The first volume gives a detailed examination of its construction program and development from its beginnings in the mid-1930s through all the variants produced during the war. Amongst its many roles, it was known widely as a feared night fighter, representing the pinnacle of German aeronautical design technology. It also served in numbers with the air forces of Finland, Italy, Hungary, Romania, Spain, and France. Its appeal as a combat aircraft—especially to modelers—was due to its widely dispersed service and as such, its variants, including the Ju 188 and Ju 288 are also covered.


William A. Medcalf was born in Monmouth, Illinois. His interest in aviation began when he was a schoolboy during World War Two and continued with weekly visits to local airfields. He became a pilot at the age of sixteen. He has continued flying for almost sixty years (propeller-driven aircraft, jets, and gliders). His interest in aviation technical history started while attending the University of Louisville. After graduating with a degree in physics, he served as an officer in the US Navy with assignments including navigator, electronics officer, air officer, CIC officer, and air defense officer. After completing Navy service, he returned to the University of Louisville and completed studies leading to a master’s degree in history (his thesis was titled “An Attempt to Gain Technical Superiority (Technical and Scientific Development of the Equipment for Air Warfare in Germany, World War II).”
