AXIS WINGS is the first volume in a new compendium series relating to the Luftwaffe and co-belligerent air forces. Drawing on the talents of many well known names in the Luftwaffe research and writing community, each issue will be packed with stories, photographs and artwork. 

There are many fascinating pieces of information on the Axis air forces that are still unpublished, and are too short for a regular book but also too important to sit on a forgotten computer hard drive. 

AXIS WINGS aims to make these stories known, accompanied by specially commissioned artwork, and photographs from private collections.
