"In this book, the author looks into the background and the development of the Ju-87 as well as the aircraft that came before it. All of the different variants are covered as well as an in-depth look at the aircraft and its systems. Several pages of full color art work, and profiles are included as well as the usual bevy of period photographs and the large cutaway on the back two pages. A great read and highly recommended." --Scott van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (August 2014)"A general overview of the Stuka with a reasonable amount of period photos, artwork and a few color profiles that add to the story of how the aircraft came about and its roll as the Luftwaffe's primary operational dive bomber. It should be of interest to those who don't know a great deal about the aircraft or would like to have a quick study of the subject in a single publication. This book is recommended to those interested in a general overview of the development and operational service of the Junkers Ju 87 Stuka." --Roger A Rasor, IPMS/USA Reviews..".an in-depth analysis of the JU 87 'Stuka' of World War II, which operated to Germany's advantage during the war, and documents innovations, strategies, and history of plane development and use in battle.
