Considered to be the best known German bomber of the Second Wold War, the Heinkel He 111 served in every military front in the European theatre, having first being deployed in the Spanish Civil War in 1936. It then saw extensive service in the invasion of Poland, the Norweigan campaign and the invasion of the Low Countries and France in 1940. When the Luftwaffe was tasked with destroying Britain's ability to resist invasion in 1940, the He 111 formed almost half of the Gruppen employed by Luftflotte 2 and Luftflotte 3. When the Luftwaffe switched to attacking cities and industrial sites the Heinkel 111 was widely employed, with raids against targets such as London, Coventry, Bristol, Birmingham and Liverpool. In this selection of unrivalled images collected over many years, the operations of this famous aircraft in the early years of the war - particularly the invasion of Poland, the Blitzkrieg in the West, the Battle of Britain and the very early stages of the Blitz - are portrayed and brought to life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Chris Goss has produced a characteristically fine record of one of the Luftwaffe's mainstay aircraft of the entire period of the Second World War - the Heinkel 111 bomber...... The book comes highly recommended by the Britain at War team."-- (04/01/2017)
"Not all historically accurate books make for good modellers' books too but this one does, not only offering loads of possible modelling subjects, but loads of close-up detail shots. I can unreservedly recommend it to anyone with an interest in World War Two, the Luftwaffe in general, or He 111 in particular... you will not be disappointed!"--IPMS/USA, March/April 2017
