The Transportflieger was an important but often forgotten arm of the Luftwaffe, responsible for providing essential supplies and battlefield support to both the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe during their World War II campaigns across Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and finally the Ardennes and the remains of the Reicht. This book comprehensively covers the Transportflieger and its legendary workhorse, the Ju52, in its transport, parachute, and airlift roles. Also covered are others in the wide range of interesting aircraft employed by the Transportflieger, including the massive Me321 and Me323 Gigant heavy-lift glider and six-engined transporter, as well as the impressive multi-engined Ju290, Ju352 Herkules, Ju390, and the huge Bv222 flying boat. The book's numerous photos and color artworks serve as an excellent reference for aviation historians and modelers. The book also includes first-hand reminiscences from those who actually flew with the Transportflieger during the war.

Martin Pegg from an early age showed an interest in aviation history and World War II, particularly the operations of the Luftwaffeís dive-bomber, ground-attack and anti-tank units. In the course of his research, which included detailed correspondence and interviews with many former Luftwaffe air and ground personnel, Pegg discovered a substantial quantity of revealing new information, which served to dispel many inaccurate myths. He now works full time as an aviation editor. He is a keen aircraft modeler and has won International Plastic Modelers Society awards for his work.
