Dornier Do 335 Pfeil/Arrow


Gerhard Roletschek


Often described as brutal yet innovative in design, the massive ‘push-pull’ Dornier Do 335 all-weather heavy fighter was symbolic of late war German aircraft design–an extraordinary aircraft which could have been deadly in combat but ultimately arrived too late to prove itself.

Maybe because of its unrealized potential, the ‘335’ has held a special fascination for aviation enthusiasts, historians and modelers ever since its existence became public knowledge.

The authors have now fully revised, updated and significantly expanded their work (by approximately 80 pages) incorporating, in particular, over 150 additional rare photographs, diagrams and new material about the development, construction and flying of the ‘335’ and the little-known projects and concepts it spawned.

Backed up by superb color profile artwork and detailed line drawings, this book represents the finest research on this enigmatic aircraft.
