World War II Fighting Jets



During the desperate closing stages of the Second World War, the Germans brought into action several new aircraft types - the jet-propelled Messerschmitt Me262 Sturmvogel and Arado Ar234 Blitz and the rocket-powered Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet. The British introduced the jet-powered Gloster Meteor and the Japanese the Yokosuka Ohka. This book tells the full story of the development and operational careers of these aircraft. It also tells the stories of the two American and one German jet aircraft that had entered squadron service and were on the point of going into action when the war ended: the Lockheed P-80A Shooting Star, the Ryan FR 1 Fireball and the Bachem 349 Natter.
