Format: Paperback
Renowned aviation author and artist, John Weal, presents the last volume of "Fw 190 Aces" not previously covered in "The Aircraft of the Aces Series" - or more accurately, yet another Weal rehash for Osprey. This small volume covers those Fw 190 aces from JG 1, JG 11 and JG 26 not already dealt with in the 'Aces' series. Given that these units have received huge coverage elsewhere this really is rather a waste of time. Go look for the three volume Classic Pubs treatment of JG 1 or Caldwell's JG 26 volumes or even the Kagero Air Miniatures title devoted to JG 11. There are NO previously unpublished photos in this volume - I do not know how they get away with saying there are on every release. I believe there is now a 'Viermot' Aces titles in preparation. Can't wait for that...

I got this book to further my interest in the subject matter. It is typical of the content that Osprey puts into these titles and gives a shallow coverage of the subject. However I was interested in the pictures and the clour plates inside it to back up other books I have on the plane in the book's title. If new to the subject then the book is a good introduction to the subject and gives a good visual presentation of the planes used. Useful for those who may want to model one or two of the planes portrayed.

The standards of Osprey publishing are very well known and this lives up to the standard. This book will appeal to Aviation Historians and model makers alike. Highly recommended.

Very comprehensive. I only skim read it, as it was a present for my old man. Right up his street, and Amazon a good resource for all things 'nerdy'!
