Fallen Stars 1 – Crashed, Damaged & Captured Aircraft of the USAAF

Not "new" except for the title according to the description, but I was unaware of previous books from this company.

Excellent news, the previous books of Tom Laemlein are now out of print (and you know what it means for the price of second hand copies). As I understand it, this one have new content but some in the futur will be reprint of Grounded Eagles and Setting Suns. Thanks for the head-up !

You're welcome. I did not know the other books were out of print. One WW II related book in my collection went from $30 to $300 before going back down.





Best,
Ed

The book is about 120 pages in italian format and have photos of P-38, P-39, P-40, P-47, P-51, P-61, A-20, A-26, B-17, B-24, B-25, B-26 & B-29, well balanced in numbers. Caption are short (two lines max) and a good share of photos are know. I did not found it extraordinar but still looking forward to the next Fallen Stars and also to other "Aircraft Pictoral Series".
