This book lifts the curtain on a largely unknown or forgotten World War II activity involving highly educated German atmospheric scientists and pilots in the so-called Wetter-Erkundungs Staffeln (Wekusta - Meteorological Reconnaissance Squadrons). The two authors - one, Franz Selinger, a well-known German writer and aerospace engineer, the other, John Kington, a highly competent British writer and meteorologist - are uniquely qualified to describe this important story as seen from both sides of the warring countries. In doing so they make a remarkable contribution to the history of aviation and meteorology, but also - and that is perhaps their main concern - to the sacrifices and accomplishments of the young scientists and pilots involved in these daring and dangerous missions.
