German Weapons of World War II is a compendium of the most important and influential pieces of weaponry and equipment that were used by the German armed services in World War II. Beginning with the items that equipped the forces of the Wehrmacht and Waffen SS, such as the Panther tank, 88mm gun and Nebelwerfer rocket launcher, the book goes on to examine the aircraft of the Luftwaffe. Famous aircraft like the Messerschmitt Bf 109, Junkers Ju 87 Stuka and Heinkel He 111 bomber are featured. German Weapons of World War II also includes the most notable vessels of the German Navy: the Graf Spee, the Bismarck, and the Tirpitz. Each item featured is illustrated by a full-colour side-profile artwork, and accompanied by a detailed specifications table giving full dimensions, weight, performance and other appropriate details such as crew, armour, armament, and powerplant, all measurements in imperial and metric. Key types are compared to show which was fastest, had the longest range and was best protected. In addition, there is accompanying text for each weapon or piece of equipment that summarises its development and service history.
