The Ju 52/3m (drei motoren - three engine) was the last and most famous of
the Junkers family of corrugated metal monoplanes.
Following a two-page introduction, the book describes the unsuccessful,
single engine Ju 52 variants before moving on to the more familiar tri-motor Ju
52. Civil and military versions (including the seaplane) are covered in the
section devoted to the development of the type.
Operational service with Lufthansa, the Luftwaffe and post-war civil service
complete this publication.
This book follows Squadron/Signal’s popular “In Action” format with Don
Greer cover art, two colour pages with ten colour profile as a “centrefold”, helpful line drawings
and specifications spread over 50 pages in landscape format. As with the
rest of the series, the real backbone of these books are the multitude of
photographs packed between the covers. More than 90 photographs are captioned in
This is another interesting book in the "In Action" series. The timing is
good with the reissue of the 1/48 scale Revell kit, the recent Eduard 1/144
scale model and some respectable offerings in 1/72 scale.
Thanks to Squadron for the review sample.
