[227051]

Heinkel He 177 Greiff - Heinkel\'s Strategic Bomber
The He 177 was a formidable warplane with the potential to have been a lethal weapon fort he 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. Nevertheless, the He 177 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 shed new light on this sometime overlooked aircraft and its unique service history. With a carefully selected collection of photographs and drawing which supplement the informative narrative, they have succeeded in producing a masterpiece which will be essential reading for all military as well as those interested in the chaotic social environment of the period. Modellers keen to recreate this exceptional warplane will find this an invaluable source of reference.
