Synopsis

The cranked-winged Ju 87 Stuka dive-bomber symbolized the might of Nazi Germany in the early years of World War II. Although vulnerable to enemy fighters due to its modest speed and lack of manoeuvrability, it nevertheless took a heavy toll of the Allied forces in Western Europe. This volume covers the story of Junkers' quintessential dive-bomber in operational service from its early days within the Legion Condor to its less than successful missions against Britain in the summer of 1940. The book features first hand combat accounts from Stuka crews of the period, explaining the training and tactics employed, as well as describing just what the JU 87 was like to fly. Full unit organizational strengths are also included in appendices.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Arguably the finest profile artist in the business, John Weal’s love of German aircraft makes his work a treat for students of the subject. He has written several Aces volumes, and two books on the JU 87 in the companion series Combat Aircraft.

Einleitungssatz
When 2Lt William Henry Brown of No 84 Sqn, Royal Flying Corps (RFC), tilted the nose of his S.E.5a scout earthwards over the Western Front shortly after midday on 14 March 1918, little did he realise that he was setting in motion a train of ideas and events which would circle the globe, via the United States and the Far East, only to return to this very area to wreak havoc some 22 years later. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Birds of Prey 29. Oktober 2005
Von R. A Forczyk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Aviation historian John Weal provides an interesting account of the development, introduction and early combat history of the German Junkers Ju-87 "Stuka" dive-bomber in Osprey's Combat Aircraft #1. The author deftly uses first-person accounts and unit histories to paint a fairly complete history of the Stuka in the first 18 months of the war. Readers should note that this volume only covers the period up to February 1941 and does not cover Stuka operations in the Mediterranean or the Soviet Union in '41.

The author spends about 13 pages in the first chapter discussing the development of the German dive bomber force in the mid-1930s, the formation of the first units and the activities of the Condor Legion in Spain (three Stukas participated in the war). This section is a bit too succinct, with little mention made of production issues and crew training. The second chapter discusses Stuka operations over Poland, Norway, the Low Countries and France in 1939-40. Although the Stuka performed well in these early operations, losses were fairly heavy, with 31 lost over Poland and 120 in the West - nearly half the original force. I wish the author had made some mention of production figures at this time, but he does state that most Stuka units started the Battle of Britain understrength. Many of the B/W photographs are superb and the ten pages of color plates are also excellent.

The last chapter covers the Stuka's role in the Battle of Britain. Although most accounts of the battle suggest that the early German anti-convoy operations had limited success, Weal makes the point that the Stuka attacks in July 1940 did indeed clear the channel of much British shipping and forced the Royal Navy to pull its destroyers back out of air range of the Stukas. However, the Stuka's success came to an abrupt end in August 1940 when the Luftwaffe shifted to attacks on RAF air bases and the Stuka squadrons suffered heavily from British fighters. In little more than a weak, heavy losses reduced the Stuka force from a `wonder weapon' to a tactical liability. Weal notes tha6t even when the Stukas made it to target, poor German intelligence often wasted their sacrifices by directing them onto low-value targets. The author provides several appendices (technical data, order of battles) as well as all-aspect line drawings. Overall, this volume is an interesting look at one of the Second World War's earliest `wonder weapons' and earliest technical disappointments.

An imperfect but solid reference book on the Junkers Ju-87 22. März 2010
Von Alan Edward Creager - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
First printed in 1997, this 96-page book is one of the more entertaining products of Osprey Publishing. It contains not only dozens of photos, illustrations, and facts, but numerous first-hand stories from the men who flew the Stuka and those who fought against it. This book begins with the pre-war formation of the German dive bomber force and the Stuka's early years, continuing into the Condor Legion's service in the Spanish Civil War. Then comes the high time for the Stuka and the entire Nazi German war machine- the conquest of mainland Europe, starting with the invasion of Poland. The Stuka built its reputation in those days, swooping down out of the sky in mass numbers, its siren shrieking and overall having a devastating effect on enemy morale. It was not until the Battle of Britain that the Stuka, along with the rest of the Luftwaffe, met with opposition that it did not overrun and destroy within days. British resistance proved to be too much for the Ju-87, which was discovered to be slow, vulnerable, and not really as scary as it had once been believed to be. It was a capable dive bomber flown by skilled and brave pilots and gunners, but the Supermarine Spitfire was more than able to bring it down in large numbers.

This book is not a complete and total history of the Stuka, if for no other reason than because of its limited span of coverage- 1937 to 1941. But it is a solid reference book and entertaining to read. If you are interested in learning about the Junkers Ju-87 Stuka and its crews, I highly recommend it.

Too many anecdotal stories and not enough high level historical development and analysis 21. Mai 2009
Von Yoda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The author, John Weal, has written many Osprey books relating to German aircraft of the second world war. This one, like most of the other he has written, provides many anecdotal and personal stories from a variety of pilots. However, it is lacking with respect to a higher level history regarding the development and deployment of the aircraft as well as to how the aircraft itself changed over the covered perioid. For example, there is no discussion as to why the aircraft was commissioned to begin with.

On the positive side the book has many very good illustrations on a wide variety of squadrons during the period in terms of both contemporaneous photographs as well as color plates that illustrate well many of the camo schemes used by squadrons equiped with aircraft of this type. In addition, there are very good plates on uniforms used by these squadrons during this time. Hence for the model or figurine builder, this book is a very good reference.
