Review by Shrike58
Another fine example of how Classic does indepth examinations of of exotic German aviation projects from World War II. Probably the most amazing thing about the Horten Brothers is their ability to garner resources for a high-risk project with very little potential for a timely pay-off. Also, somewhat to my surprise, the authors feel the need to do some debunking about the capabilities of Ho 229, as there have apparently been efforts to paint it as a World War II exercise in stealth technology. That such stories even exist demonstrate the fascination these projects still have.
