Researched over twenty years, this incredible body of work brings together details from the official RAF intelligence and interrogation reports, and combines them into a definitive guide to every enemy aircraft that came down over the UK during WWII. With over 200 photos in each volume, drawn from dozens of expert sources, this lavishly illustrated series is a must for any Luftwaffe enthusiast or indeed anyone with an interest in the Air-War 1939-1945.

Volume Five covers from the 28th September 1940 – 27th Ocotber 1940. This period covers the final phase of the Battle of Britain when large formations of bomb carrying Bf109s were roaming over southern England, forcing the RAF to launch standing patrols to combat this new menace. As such this book mainly contains Bf109s in various states of disrepair along with a selection of bombers mainly brought down at night as The Blitz started to intensify.


Nigel’s interest in German aircraft was nurtured from an early age due to his father’s tales of growing up in wartime Birmingham and his collection of bits of aeroplanes, bits of shrapnel and incendiary bombs.He later become involved in the recovery of crashed aeroplanes and through this interest was ‘introduced to the joys of spending many happy hours in what was then The Public Records Office at Kew’.Now retired from his position in cryogenics at Oxford University, he swapped his quest for ‘Absolute Zero’ to committing his considerable knowledge of Luftwaffe operations over Britain to print.
