ROCKET FIGHTER: THE STORY OF THE MESSERSCHMITT Me163

by Mano Ziegler






The story of the flight testing of the world's first operational rocket-powered interceptor, the Me 163 is told by one of the 30 pilots of Test Commando 16 (Eprobingskommand 16) who were entrusted with it's operational development during the Second World War. The book is not just full of technical details and development; it also tells the human stories of the pilots who flew (and sometimes died in) this revolutionary, but lethal fighter.

THE LAST PANTHER: SLAUGHTER OF THE REICH

by Wolfgang Faust

Translated from the memoir 'Kesselpanzer' this is an account of the breakout from the Halbe-Kessel, April to May, 1945. While the Battle of Berlin is widely known, the horrific story of the Halbe Kessel remains largely untold. In April 1945, victorious Soviet forces encircled 80,000 men of the German 9th Army in the Halbe area, South of Berlin, together with many thousands of German civilians. The small town of Halbe became the eye of the hurricane for the breakout, as King Tigers of the SS Panzer Corps led the spearhead to the West, supported by Panthers of the battle-hardened 21st Panzer Division. This is a first-hand account by the commander of one of those Panther tanks.
