Dornier Do 335 : An Illustrated History

The Do 335 was developed by Dornier as a heavy fighter in 1943. One of the last high-performance piston-engined aircraft designed, the Do 335 was powered by tandem fore-aft engines, a concept proven in numerous Dornier flying boats. As a result of this configuration, drag was reduced to little more than that of a single-engined aircraft, enabling the Do 335 to achieve very high speeds.
The Do 335 represented the apex of propeller-driven aircraft in the Second World War.

This is the first comprehensive, well-illustrated documentation on the Do 335, one of the milestones in German aviation history.

Dornier Do 335 (Osprey)

The Dornier Do 335 was conceived as a high-speed, all-weather fighter, and represented the pinnacle of piston-engined aircraft design. The Do 335 was a big aircraft, weighing just over 10,000kg when laden with fuel, equipment, and pilot, yet powered by two Daimler-Benz DB 603 engines, it was capable of reaching a maximum speed of 750km/h at 6400 meters, making it the fastest piston engine aircraft produced in Germany during World War II.

Some forty aircraft were built between late 1943 and the end of the war, and it was intended to deploy the type as a day fighter, bomber, night fighter, bad weather interceptor, and reconnaissance aircraft, all of which were intended to incorporate the latest armament, bomb sights, communications, and radar equipment, as well as an ejector seat.

Featuring archive photography and specially commissioned artwork, this is the full story of the aircraft that the Luftwaffe hoped would turn the tide of the war.
