A follow-on volume to the authors earlier two books on Luftwaffe project fighters, this is by far the best of the three. The focus is the Focke Wulf jet fighter projects, generally knows as “Jager Projekt (I-VII)”, and Nachtjager, Volksjager, and Rammjager projects. These represented late-war programs that would aim to replace obsolescent Me-109, Me-210/-410, and Me-110 series aircraft still in service in 1944-45. The earliest of the projects aimed at using a Jumo 004 in Me-109 and Fw-190 airframes, with modifications to accommodate the turbine engine, The earliest project could have taken a late-model Me-109 and turned it into a production jet fighter – proposed in 1943 – into a viable production aircraft in 1944!
