"Fighters Defending the Ardennes" by Peter Celis

I can't find much information about this - no links to a publisher.
The cover looks pretty interesting though and there are some preview pages on fb.

Fighters Defending the Ardennes (2019)
by Peter Celis
Color Profiles by John Wolfs
203 pages

"This illustrated publication details the various aircraft that served the Allies from various Belgian airfields during the later years of WW2. The book includes many archive photographs, colour profiles and sections about specific aircraft and pilots."

Re: "Fighters Defending the Ardennes" by Peter Celis

I received my copy of this book yesterday and I am very pleased I bought it!! Peter Celis is Belgian and I believe he is or was a F-16 pilot. He published a book a few years ago "Runways to Victory" which was about the various airfields in Belgium used by the Allies and was an excellent production.

This new book is loaded with nicely reproduced images illustrating the various Allied types that were involved in air operations over the Ardennes. There are a lot of photos that are new to me. The coverage of 9th Air Force units especially the recce units is very welcome a lot of new stuff that I have not seen: P-38s with forward looking cameras under the wings; A-26s with additional gun pods; lots of P-51s including TacR P-51As; P-47s; P-61s; Spitfire XIVs, Typhoons etc

As Ed West would say "enjoy"
