Messerschmitt Me264 Amerika Bomber - Robert Forsyth & Eddie J. Creek - Classic Publications / Ian Allan


RARE & OOP!


Yet another masterful account of a particular aircraft type from world-renowned authors Robert Forsyth and Eddie J. Creek! This volume is on the Classic Publications imprint (as then owned by Ian Allan) that the two men set up - synonymous with QUALITY.


128 page hardback book on this fascinating plane (only one of which was completed) - absolutely packed with technical info & photographs, and the best text you will find anywhere in the English language on the aircraft - really essential stuff and of course, long out of print. The author recently did a small softcover book for Osprey (2016) on the same subject, but it is nowhere near as good as this book.


Here's a (2006) review (from an Amazon.co.uk customer) to help you make up your mind:


If you have a strong interest in this unique German aircraft (only one was ever completed), then you'll want to own this book. I have waited many years for such a volume to appear in print and at last it has. You will NOT be disappointed with it.


The authors give us a technically detailed and comprehensive description of the Me 264's genesis, development, construction, flight testing and ultimate destruction at the hands of Allied bombers. They also provide extensive background history on the Luftwaffe's efforts to produce a long-range strategic bomber fleet, the personalities involved in those efforts and the reasons why it eventually all came to naught.


Competing designs for the "Amerika Bomber" project (such as the Junkers Ju 290 and 390, Heinkel He 177 and Blohm & Voss Bv222) are reviewed as well as brief mention of Italian plans to strike New York using the four-engined Cant Z.511 floatplane, the SM.95 land plane and the three-engined Piaggio P.23R.


The book is profusely illustrated with large-format close-up photos of the Me 264 V 1 under construction and undergoing flight evaluation, factory design plans, 3-view renderings of the proposed swept wing version (using a combination of piston engines and turbo-jets) and includes interesting sidebars on the BMW 801 engine, the British recon flight confirming the plane's existence to the Allies and on Messerschmitt test pilot Karl Baur who flew the Me 264 at least thirty times.


Well-researched and consistently absorbing to read, this book will serve as an excellent reference work on the Me 264 for both the WWII military aircraft enthusiast and modeller. Robert Forsyth and Eddie Creek deserve kudos for sharing their extensive knowledge of this elegant-looking aircraft and removing it from undeserved obscurity.
