This book is a fully updated and revised edition of Martin Pegg’s 1997 study of the Luftwaffe’s ground-attack aircraft, the Henschel Hs 129.

Based on years of further research, the author has uncovered new information and photographic material relating to the development and operational use of the Hs 129 in German and Rumanian service. The book includes chapters on the First World War and pre-Second World War development of the Schlachtflieger, plus comprehensive coverage of the development of the aircraft itself and its associated experimental and operational weapons.

The majority of the book is devoted to the use of the aircraft in North Africa and Russia where, although not perfect, the Hs 129 proved to be the only one capable of combatting Soviet armour and was still in front-line service in May 1945.

Numerous pilot accounts, details of examples captured by the Allies and a section on camouflage and markings are included. Overall, this is a package which will overturn many common misconceptions which persist about an aircraft that was very well-liked by its pilots and which was described by Henschel Flugzeug-Werk’s works manager as being ‘ten years ahead of its time.’

The book features updated scale drawings by Arthur Bentley as well as specially-commissioned colour artwork by digital artist, Janusz Swiatlon.
