  Article Content


The name Junkers is well known in connection with aircraft, which were produced under this name for the Luftwaffe during World War II. They were instrumental in many campaigns such as bombing Guernica and airborne landings on Crete with Ju 52, or massive bombardments by Ju 87 Stukas). By this time, however, the Nazi government had already seized control of his businesses, and Hugo Junkers himself was dead.

World War II saw Junkers factories as a leading producer of military aircraft such as the Ju52[?] "Tante Ju" and the Ju 87 Stuka dive-bomber.
