Heinkel He 111 operational history
Through development it was described as a "wolf in sheep's clothing". Due to restrictions placed on Germany after the First World War prohibiting bombers, it masqueraded as a civil airliner , although from conception the design was intended to provide the nascent Luftwaffe with a fast medium bomber. Perhaps the best-recognised German bomber due to the distinctive, extensively glazed " greenhouse " nose of later versions, the Heinkel He was the most numerous Luftwaffe bomber during the early stages of World War II.
