The Third Reich pocket-size book has a full-color cover. Inside, there is a general review of war plane types, bombs, torpedoes, and the markings that distinguish German and foreign aircraft. That information is followed by a 16 page section on German warplanes and separate sections on Italian, British-American and Soviet airplanes.
Boeing B-17
The aircraft in the book are shown in photographic views with performance data, followed by 3-view silhouettes.

This mid-war edition includes late model aircraft like the Martin Baltimore A-30, Boeing B-17 E and F, Douglas DC-4 Skymaster and the Russian DB-3F.
