Riassunto: In the style of the successful Jagdwaffe series, which concentrated on German day fighters, this concludes a two-part history of the Nachtjager, the Luftwaffe's nightfighter force, in World War II. The Luftwaffe used many aircraft in the nightfighter role, primarily to combat RAF Bomber Command's nocturnal heavy bombing raids against German targets from 1940/1 onwards. Both sides engaged in a 'cat and mouse' development of aircraft enhancement, weapons, guidance systems and radar. In this volume, the later versions of the Ju88G, Fw 190 'Wild Sau', Do 217, Me 262, Ta 154 and others are examined in depth. The text is accompanied by a wide range of photographs, many of which are published here for the first time, together with color profiles and biographies of top nightfighter aces. This volume and its predecessor, published in July 2005, will provide the modeler and historian with a detailed examination of the Nachtjager forces deployed by the Luftwaffe during the war and will be required reading for all interested in the subject of the nightly battles over the skies of the Reich during the conflict.
About the Author: In recent years David Williams has traveled extensively around Germany and Austria to interview former Luftwaffe pilots and their families in the course of his research into German fighter operations during World War II. He has gathered a substantial collection of documentation and photographs. He is the author of Hunters of the Reich: Day Fighters (pub 2002) for which he worked closely with five leading German fighter pilots, and a similar biographical study, Hunters of the Reich: Night Fighters (pub 2003). He is married and lives in the west of England.
