This volume, the second in a mulit-volume history of German aviation, discusses the life work of one of Germany's greatest aircraft designers in pictures, tables, drawings and in his own words discussing flight testing of his airplanes. Examined are the birth of Focke-Wulf's airplanes, the ideas and thinking which formed the foundation of Tank's designs, his masterpieces in the areas of long-range and high-speed flight as well as flight test results. The reader experiences the metamorphosis of an aircraft design from the first pencil line on the drawing board to the screaming, nearly supersonic dives during its evaluation phase. Tank would only entrust to civilian pilots, military flyers and the captains of the Lufthansa fleet those designs whose superior flying characteristics, stability, and flawless stall handling he had been able to experience first hand. A mixture of technical history, flight testing and previously unpublished data enable the reader to catch a fascinating glimpse of the aircraft built during the 1930s and 1940s, not to mention the outstanding designs Tank worked on in other countries following the war. All of the classic Focke-Wulf aircraft are to be found: the well-known Fw 200, Fw 190, Ta 152, and Ta 154, as well as the lesser known Fw 57, Fw 187, Fw 189 and others.

Kurt Tank was without doubt one of Germany's foremost aircraft designers, responsible for some of the finest products of the German aviation industry, before and during World War II. The range of aircraft types produced by the Focke-Wulf concern was prodigious, covering small biplane trainers, advanced fighters and long-range passenger aircraft, all of which were highly successful designs. Tank was, however, a man of his times, and this album of personal photos gives an idea of the sights and events which interested and surrounded him in the momentous early years of World War II. All the pictures in this book came from Tank's own album, the images being scanned from photographs specially printed from the original 35-mm negatives. All are accompanied by highly detailed captions and descriptive text.
