Basic Italian Air Force Library

Who has recommendations on a basic library covering the Italian air Force in WWII? My library, (all English-language books) includes:

Italian Civil and Military Aircraft 1930-1945, Thompson, Aero Publishers 1963: maybe the only “Putnam”-like treatment of Italian aircraft.

Air War Italy, 1944-1945. Beale, D’Amico, VAlentini, Airlife 1996: Excellent history from primary and secondary sources, but only the “end game” covered.

Courage Alone: The Italian Air Force 1940-1943, Dunning, Hikoki, 1998: excellent coverage of the subject but strangely organized. Lots of information once you learn how to navigate the book. Not really a book to be read, but to be browsed.

Air War Over Italy 1943-1945, Brookes, Ian Allen, 2000: High level history from secondary sources with a few interesting observations.

Italian Aces of World War 2, Massimello and Apostolo, Osprey, 2000: One of Osprey’s best offerings.

It looks like there is no single volume covering the entire war, from 1940 to 1945, and the axis and allied air forces. Does anyone have significant additions to this list?
