A truly excellent book. John Vasco (an authority on the 110) and artist Fernando Estanislau have done a first rate job in producing a thoroughly researched volume on the 110.
Much information on the Bf 110 that exists is either out of date, inaccurate or contradictory. This book clears up a lot of that confusion, and allows the reader in a clear and concise way, to identify the myriad of service life improvements and modifications that were made to the 110 through it's production life.
Dealing with the C, D, & E variants, with a brief foray into the early B model, the book is packed with many previously unpublished photographs and well researched information. These are backed up with manual drawings and official documentation. This is added to throughout by marvellous artwork by Fernando Estanislau, which really makes for a complete package.
With regard to colours and markings on the type, this book is not about that. It does exactly what it says on the cover, "An Illustrated Study- Variants, Weapons, Equipment". What it does do is to provide the reader, whether they be a modeller, historian or like me; both, with an invaluable reference source, that could almost be considered a 'one stop shop' when trying to sort through the variant minefield that is the mid-series Bf 110.
In conclusion, I cannot recommend this book enough. If you are a student of Luftwaffe history, then it is must that you have it on your library shelf. You won't be disappointed.
