The He177 was a formidable warplane with the potential to have been a lethal weapon for the Nazis. Unfortunately, it was ill-fated and suffered from serious problems such as an inherently poor engine design and 'knee-jerk' role diversification by the commanders in charge. Furthermore, the aircraft's development and testing was crucially damaged by the turbulent political environment of the day. Nazi leadership agonised over the aircraft's delay and deployment, and so the aircraft which enticed thousands with its daring potential, sadly failed to reach these standards.Nevertheless, the He177 was a remarkable warplane which adopted several different roles at various stages of its development. It was considered an excellent dive-bomber and strategic bomber, with the capabilities of an anti-shipping aircraft and transport and tank-destroyer. In this extensively researched new study, accomplished authors Richard Smith and Eddie Creek endeavour to shed new light on this sometimes overlooked aircraft and its unique service history.

With a carefully selected collection of photographs and drawings which supplement the informative narrative, they have succeeded in producing a masterpiece which will be essential reading for all military and social historians of this period, as well as modellers keen to recreate this exceptional warplane.

Great Value !! 9. Juli 2009
Von R. Fluke - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Once again Classic Publications has produced an excellent reference work
on another of Germany's unusual warplanes.

This volume has only a few color profiles and some wartime color pictures but the majority of the information is presented in factory drawings and B&W photos.

The He 274 and He 277 four engined variations are also included.

Period drawings and illustrations taken from Luftwaffe maintenance manuals provide modelers and historians with clear details of the interior and exterior features of this often maligned aircraft. A quality publication that is definitely worth all 5 stars!!

Goering wanted a heavy bomber, not a hangar queen 30. August 2009
Von Karl Pople - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
What Hermann Goering and the Luftwaffe brass wanted before World War 2 was a heavy, four engined bomber, similar to the Boeing B-17 being developed in America. Due to short sightedness, the project was put on hold several times while the German leaders conducted what they thought would be a short range, limited war involving battles between their immediate neighbors that would require only medium bombers with small bomb loads that could be produced quickly. Eventually given the nod in 1939, the prototype didn't fly until 1941 and didn't enter combat until November 1942. It's service time was short, by the end of 1944 all Heinkel 177s were grounded due to the fuel shortages suffered by Germany.

This book is a VERY well researched project by the two authors and I enjoyed it very much. The first half of it encompasses the developement, research, and flight testing, the second half of the book covers introduction to service, combat, and eventual demise of the He-177, as well as a large section from the aircraft manual, the aircraft descibed technically, and a listing by airframe of all He-177s built and their final disposition, i.e. crashed, scrapped, etc..

Fortunately for the Allies, the Heinkel Company was never able to correct the deficiencies in the coupled engines and never received permission until too late to convert it into a truly four-engine bomber, otherwise the Germans might have eventually had a true strategic bomber on their hands.

This is the second book by the authors I have purchased, the original one being JV-44, The Galland Circus. As with that book, I would highly recommend this one to any serious student of Germany's Air Force.

"Greif" not "Grief"... 15. August 2009
Von Jim Davis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
...although the latter would have been more appropriate.

This book is, in most respects, everything we've come to expect from a Luftwaffe Classic volume (this is number 15 in that series). It has loads of new, unpublished photos, contemporary drawings, translations of contemporary documents, first person accounts, production lists, operational history, etc, etc, etc.

Then why do I give it only four stars?

The two things that most everyone with any interest in German aircraft of this period knows are merely repeated with nothing in the way original discussion or documentation. These two things, are namely, 1.) that it had coupled engines and 2.) the reason for 1.) was to allow the He 177 to dive. The authors' sole source for the diving requirement seems to be Ernst Heinkel's autobiography. While this might seem an impeccable source from a man who would surely know, Heinkel's autobiography is known to be self serving with glaring inaccuracies. The only other contemporary reference to the diving requirement is from the minutes of a Goring meeting where he expresses complete surprise that the He 177 was required to dive.

Is it at all possible that there was *no* diving requirement? That Heinkel invented it as coming from the recently deceased Udet to excuse He 177 shortcomings? And that the coupled engines were for entirely different reasons such as lower drag and the ability to uncouple engine halves to lower fuel consumption to increase range? Why no photographs of dive brakes? How was the He 177 to release bombs from a dive?

To be clear, I'm not saying that the conventional wisdom *is* necessarily wrong. I'm just saying that if the conventional wisdom is indeed the truth then there surely must be copious documentation of what surely must have been a controversial requirement. I fault the authors for not realizing that this is a subject that needs to be researched and discussed in greater depth.

Summing up, I heartily recommend this book with the reservation that it is hard to escape the feeling that the there is more to be learned about this aircraft and this might not be the definitive book.

Great modeling reference and an enjoyable read to boot. Large format images, details and logical arrangement provides good coverage very useful and relevant reference. Highly recommended to the modeler and the aircraft enthusiast alike.
A real Classic. 23. April 2014
Von Alte Adler - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Same excellence as all the other Classic Publications. Their winning formula is simple. Combine the best writers on the Luftwaffe, with decades of amassing photos and documents and interviews, and publish on the best quality paper.
