Embleme der Luftwaffe, Bd. 1: Nah- und Fernaufklärer.
 
Expected in the Summer. This one is a must have. To say I'm excited is... well, I'll just stop there.

I wonder why this is not recommended for modelers? Perhaps a mistype for C-S?

Dear John,

I think you misread the sentence. It is saying that, not only is it recommended for modellers, but as a general reference book as well.

Regards,
Richard

Delayed until Spring 2018. I wonder if Snautzer's emblem finds, and those of others, might be part of the delay. Still looking forward to it.

Some pages from the book. Looks like they are going with an English language edition.

Is it in English? Or are there two versions? One English and one German?

Thank you, Del.

I don't know where to start, if you pardon the pun, this book is a masterly work of research, I cannot recommend it more highly. crisp, clear, large very high quality photo illustrations, excellent emblem drawings. The accompanying unit histories whilst not fully comprehensive are very useful the photo captions give more of the history of the emblem. The whole book drips quality, in terms of both research, reproduction and sheer hard work. To give you an idea of how comprehensive this work is, only two pages are given over to unknown emblems and even the emblems are in colour! For me this book is one of the best ever made concerning an arm of the Luftwaffe, it renders all other works containing on all the Aufklarungsgruppe emblems redundant. My advice buy it before they run out, it will be an instant classic. This volume is more than very good, it's indispensable. Hopefully more will follow of the same quality which should become the best series of generic Luftwaffe books ever published. Axel, Peter, Gerhard and Uwe yours is a masterpiece.

Thank you, ChrisS. Now I wonder, where is the best place to get it? Direct from the publisher?

Other sellers offer lower shipping cost.

I complained to the publisher to the 17€ (!) they charged me to send it to France while someone in Belgium got charged 7€ less. They answered me :

"You are right, it´s difficult to understand. We get the cheapest charges for Belgium, the Nederlands, Luxemburg and Austria, the secondcheapest for Denmark, Check Republik and Switzerland and on the third place for France, Great Britain and Monaco."

So if you are in France, as I will do next time, buy from Lela Presse : http://www.avions-bateaux.com/

Really... Good to know.

Well for Aufklarungsgruppe that is. Your work on the Jagdwaffe is still the best. I will amend my former post accordingly.

Re: Embleme der Luftwaffe, Bd. 1: Nah- und Fernaufklärer.
 
Chris,

There is no need to amend your previous post. It is your opinion, and it is fine. Something similar I heard from a renowned author, Paul Stipdonk, so you are in good company here.

I don't think that anybody will stop their effort in this respect in spite of your, or anybody else's, opinion that any further work will be redundant. This is just the way it is.

Regards,
Sinisa
