Comments about Wings of the Black Cross 10

With all due respect to the people at Eagle Editions, why don't you add more information about the contents on your web site? As a book publishing professional, fans of our work buy more books if they have more information. The more they drool... uh, are informed about what's inside, the more copies we sell. So what follows are some content additions:

Two photos of a Bf 109 E-1 of III./JG 26 "Schlageter" from late 1939.

Two photos of a Bf 109 K-4 with W.Nr. I had thought the spray-painted style of numbering was a fiction until seeing the three digits behind the balkenkreuz in the photos.

A photo of a Bf 109 G-6 with W.Nr. applied on non-standard places.

A photo of a Bf 109 E-3 belonging to Oblt. Josef "Pips" Priller.

Photos from the Neubiberg dump site with two Me 262's, including W.Nr. 111728 and the tail of W.Nr. 110376, plus "White 7."

A Wright Field photo of an Me 262, W.Nr. 111711.

Two photos of an Me 262 A with the unconfirmed W.Nr. of 130015 with a large V015 on the side just ahead of the cockpit.

Two photos of an He 177 A-5 found in France in 1944.

A photo of the second prototype Ar 232 fitted with defensive armament. This version has two engines as opposed to four in later versions.

A photo of an Ar 232 B with Air Min 17

Four photos of the Ju 288 V2.

Two photos of Me 410, 7A+KH in a derelict state.

A photo of He 219 A-010 V17.

A photo of Ju-290, 9V+AB at Brunnthal in derelict condition.


But that's not all of it. There are some Fw-200 photos and several aircraft in British markings, and more. In conclusion, another fine issue.


Usual disclaimer,
Ed

Dear Ed,

Thanks for supplying the missing detail. Like you, I wondered why so little was said about the contents of this issue on Eagle Editions website. And, I agree, lacking much info on the website definitely doesn't help sell this book - a big advertising goof!

Regards,
Richard

Dear Richard,


You're welcome. Unpublished photos is one of the primary reasons for me to buy the books in this series and other books by reputable publishers.

I'd like to add: Happy Easter!



Regards,
Ed

Hi Judy,


Feel free to copy and paste. Since I work for a book publishing company with a staff of 5, not counting freelancers, I know what it's like.


Best,
Ed
