Ebay colour book from 1942

Hi all,
Check out Ebay item Number: 370159400420
the Ebay page has quite a few colour pictures from within the book.
Written in german.

Whoever buys it I hope they would share some of the other pictures too.

Re: Ebay colour book from 1942 "Fliegende Front"

Hello,
This book was published for propaganda purposes and covers all aspects of the "Flying Fronts" (bombers, fighters, stukas, etc, but also paratroops and Flack artillery) in 16 chapters and 119 pages.
As you imagine, people and crews are more covered than materials and when planes are photographied, the pictures are often "artistic"...
Enjoy this small extract with 5 nice (I hope) images.

Alain

Re: Ebay colour book from 1942

Fliegende Front pops up periodically on eBay in various conditions and prices. Most, if not all, of its color photos have appeared over the years in books about LW aircraft and camouflage, so you've probably seen them already. The book's photos tend to have a somewhat better visual quality than the reproductions that show up in more recent books.
