Eagle Editions is pleased to announce the second book in their new Wings of the Black Cross Special series. Special Number Two explores the history of Germany's iconic WWII dive bomber, the Junkers Ju 87 Stuka.
The Special series adopts a different approach than that of the popular Wings of the Black Cross (WOTBC) series, though the book similar in format. These new Special titles focus on specific aircraft in the Luftwaffe inventory, unlike the broader spectrum of aircraft in the standard WOTBC series. The reader is also provided with increased photo coverage, page count, expanded text and color profile content.
The soft cover book is 48 pages in length, printed in 8.5" X 11" format. The Ju 87 Stuka saw operations in all theaters, both day and night. Each role is examined in great detail using photos extracted from the authors private collection. Most are seen here in print for the first time. To fill in any minor gaps, photos from select contributors are also included. Expanded text investigates its operational roles, camouflage and markings. In all, 67 photos grace the contents of the book, each with detailed captions.
Eagle Editions is also excited to announce the recent addition of Steve Diesley to the team. Using his unique computer talents, he has created ten color profiles with scrap views where appropriate. Each is seen here for the first time and is the culmination of plenty of hard work, proofing and debate. Eagle Editions is confident that his artwork brings something new to the study of the Junkers bomber and its gull-wing design.
