The Henschel Hs126 was the Luftwaffe equivalent of the Lysander, a classic high-wing STOL army cooperation aircraft. Like the Lysander, it proved too vulnerable in wartime operations, and was quickly relegated to training and glider tug roles. It had a renaissance later in the war as a night attack bomber on the Eastern Front. The Hs126 also saw service in Spain, Latvia, Soviet Union and Greece. This book describes the development and operations of the Hs126, and is illustrated with many photos and colour profiles, plus scale plans. Over 350 previously unpublished wartime photos are included.
