A softback book series examining aircraft and pilots of the Axis powers has been launched by UK-based Chandos Publications. CHRIS CLIFFORD reports.


Germany’s World War Two Luftwaffe is one of the most heavily researched subjects for modellers. At this stage of the game, it’s not easy for publishers to offer anything new… but Chandos Publications is making a creditable attempt with its fresh reference series Axis Wings. Other works – such as the current Luftwaffe im Focus from Luftfahrtverlag START and Classic Publications’ previous Jagdwaffe collection – sit firmly with German materiel.
