Overview
 
Hitchcock. The complete history of Focke-Wulf's Ta 152 and the lesser known Ta 153. Fascinating tale of a high-performance airplane produced in small numbers that appeared late in the war - the union of an advanced engine within an innovative airframe in conjunction with an entirely new wing which allowed the Ta 152 to out-perform its contemporaries at all altitudes. Addresses the political intrigue, rivalries and divided loyalties which ultimately proved disastrous for the Nazi regime, but also formed the crucible that the Ta 152 was created in. Reveals a varied cast of characters (designers, engineers, test pilots, operational aircrew and bureaucrats) and their contributions in bringing the aircraft to fruition, despite being rushed into production while undergoing continuous testing. Includes appendices covering camouflage, insignia and markings; production and Werknummern; specifications, weights, performance and equipment; operating instructions and systems. Lavishly illustrated with 40 color and 180 b/w photos (many previously unpublished), 36 full-color graphics and profiles, 75 detailed diagrams plus 19 data tables and charts; 208 pages.
