The twin-engined He 111 was the mainstay of the Luftwaffe's bomber arm at the start of World War 2. Accompanied by the Ju 87 Stuka dive-bomber, it provided the aerial striking power for all the early Blitzkrieg campaigns, sweeping all before it throughout the first 12 months of hostilities. Although it was found wanting when faced by the resilient RAF pilots and their aircraft during the Battle of Britain, it gained new renown on the Eastern Front.

The He 111 bomber was in action against the Russians from the first day of the war until the last, bombing a range of targets including the cities of Moscow, Leningrad and Stalingrad. It played a part in all the major battles and was employed in a wide variety of roles, including operating as a strategic bomber, torpedo-bomber (over both the Arctic Ocean and the Black Sea), train-buster, interim nightfighter and, latterly, as an auxiliary transport.

This 100th book in the Combat Aircraft series contains fascinating archival images and 30 colour profiles by long-standing Osprey author and illustrator John Weal.
