Do 217 Combat Units of WW2

For those interested, 90 photos (which will be cut down to 60), 36,000 words and 30 colour profiles delivered to Osprey yesterday. As soon as I have a publication date, I will inform all. I can now understand why very little has been written on this workhorse! Nobody had time to take photos and much of the technical material especially for the night fighter and Hs 293/Fritz X launchers were ordered to be destroyed at the end of the war

Re: Do 217 Combat Units of WW2

Count me among those interested as well. Will there be a big (Crecy; as with the Do 17 and Fw 200) book to follow on the Do 217?

Marcel: But as you well know, you will be disappointed from a I./KG 66 perspective!

Alfred: Osprey book will be scraping the surface of an oft forgotten aircraft with an effective operational career of just 3 years. Never used in any great numbers on the Eastern Front where it was used extensively for night recce
