The long awaited third volume in Smith & Creek's FW 190 history does not disappoint. It is another fabulously researched piece of work, as you would expect from the authors.

This volume continues from where volume 2 left off, detailing the late war history of the 190. The late A, D and F series are covered in detail. Further sections cover some fascinating weaponry that was tested on the 190. Night fighters, Sturmgruppe and the Sachsenberg Shwarm are also covered.

The book also has a very interesting section on captured aircraft and the 190 in foreign service. A comprehensive list of surviving 190s is also given.

Great colour profiles compliment the many photographs and while some have been seen before there are also newly published photographs. Add the informative and very readable text and there is little left to want. The book also suggests that the potential for a 4th volume looks likely to be realised in the future

Highly recommended to all aviation enthusiasts.

...my copy of the Creek/Smith Fw 190 Vol 3 1944-45 has arrived. I must admit to have been a little apprehensive about the contents given that Crandall and Japo must have covered just about everything there is to know about the Dora. I shouldn't have worried. While there is a JG 6 Dora on the jacket, this is not specifically a Dora volume.

First impressions - this is a lovely book, nice glossy paper, pages crammed with pics and artwork except for the occasional photo reproduced large. The Dora content is actually not that extensive - although there appears to be more on the developmental history of the Dora than in other publishers works. The first chapter (chapter 21) covers the development of the Jumo 21, 213 and DB 603, the D-9, D-11, D-12 etc, with an array of handbook drawings, manufacturers' photos and a translation of the Baubeschreibung for the Dora-9 over four pages along with selected pilot reports;

" ..any advantage that this aircraft may have in performance over other models of the Fw 190 is more than offset by its poor handling characteristics..."

Chapter 22 moves the story to D-Day, Arnhem and the arrival of the first Doras at III./ JG 54 while chapter 23 covers the Sturmgruppen in the defence of the Reich. Chapter 24 moves us back to the Eastern Front and features an excellent sequence of full page pictures of JG 54 machines undergoing maintenance with a five-page profile of Otto Kittel including rare images of Kittel at Riga in June 1944, although not unfortunately of his Fw 190 - a lovely sequence of these do exist in at least one collection I am familiar with..Chapter 25 by Nick Beale covers various SGs, NSGrs and other 'special' Fw 190 units including KG 200.

It is difficult to imagine any future book giving a more comprehensive history of the Fw190 than do this one and its two companion volumes. Volume 3 covers the development of the final versions of the 190, in particular the "langnasen" long-nose variants, plus the operational history of all variants from mid-1944 until the end of WW2. Appendices list all known surviving 190s, the aircraft's use with foreign air forces, technical details of all prototypes, and, in tabular form, technical details of every type and sub-type of the 190. The book is well written and illustrated, well-designed and produced, and will undoubtedly become a standard work on the subject.

I have already bought Volumes one and two and on the strength of them I pre-ordered Volume three as soon as Amazon were accepting orders and I have not been disappointed.
I paid a fair price for this book and feel I got good very value for money.
Do I consider myself "an expert on the FW-190" - no I do not , which is the reason why I have invested in the two previous books and this third volume.
The book itself is produced to a very high standard, it is illustrated with a wealth of fine photographs and line drawings, the text reads well and the pick up from Volume two is seamless I simply cannot fault it.
In terms of production quality the same high standard has continues , you get a really good deal on this fine book.
Volume four.... well this company and its authors did four books on the Me 262 and I can't think that I need to buy another work on the 262 , my only regret was having to pay handsomely for the first 262 book on the second hand market, I do not want to do the same with a potential fourth "190" book and within the numbering sequence space has already been made for Volume four.

Looking forward to seeing Volume two on the JU 88 which will (I hope) shortly be in print.

Well, after owning the two previous volumes, I was happy to close the history of a very ,in my opinion, modern WWII combat airplane ...But one should also be aware of the fact that the three, maybe later even four, volumes are taking up a lot of space in your book shelf ! What I like mostly are this clear b/w pictures...Sometimes seems that they were only taken yesterday ! Have not yet started to read the books but as an modeler, I'm more looking over these clear pictures to help me built my scale airplanes : )
