Re: Messerschmitt Bf 109. The Yugoslav Story, Vol. 2. Operational Record 1939–1953.

Hi all,

I received the book last week and as soon as I started to browse it, I immediately discovered how well it is done. The 200 pages are good printed as is the quality of the paper. As usually for Boris' books, it is well written based on detailed and very deep researches.
Interesting are the final chapters also, dealing with the colours and markings of the aircraft and a series of profiles. The eleven appendixes with tables of victories and losses are noteworthy and extremely useful.
I really appreciate it, for sure a first class book, highly recommended.
Congrats to Boris, Dragan and Milan for the amazing work.

Flavio

Re: Messerschmitt Bf 109. The Yugoslav Story, Vol. 2. Operational Record 1939–1953.

Hello Alain,


My next book is more-less finished (take a look at the inner side of the cover page) and it should be printed next spring. It is slightly different from previous jeroplan books titles, as it is basically an photo album named "Scrapbook of Lost Aviation". I have a feeling that people do not have time or desire for long reads and are much more interested in photographs. So I prepared 25 short stories, covering 219 photos, starting in 1912 and ending in 1999 (Serbian Aviation Command, Austro-Hungarians, French in the Orient, Yugoslav Kingdom, Luftwaffe, USAAF, RAF, Italian Co-Belligerent AF, VVS, post-war Yugoslav AF, Israeli AF, etc.), covering dozens of aircraft types (Bleriot XI, Lohner seaplanes, Etrich Taubes, Nieuports, Fenix C.I, FBA flying boats, LGL B3s, Do Ds, Hurricanes, Fi 156s, Do 17s, Hs 126s, Z.1007s, B-24s, Yak 1s, Il-2s, Spitfires, T-33As, Augusta-Bell 47Js, F-84Gs, DC-9, RF-5Es, MiG 21s, MiG 29s to name a few). A motley bunch and all of it connected with the area of former Yugoslavia. But, I'll provide more details when the time comes in a separate topic


Cheers,
Boris

Have received the book yesterday and started to read it at once. Seems to be very well written and full of interesting, detailed descriptions of flying operations. I must fully agree with Flavio's opinion. Excellent work!

Matti

Thank you Boris.

Alain

Please, do you have a detailled air order of battle of the royal yugoslav air force and naval aviation on April 1941 ?

Thank you

Re: Messerschmitt Bf 109. The Yugoslav Story, Vol. 2. Operational Record 1939–1953.

I can only agree

This book is a goldmine of information and as usual Boris & Co does not take the easy way out, but tell us the story without fingers pointed and not always the way we thought it would be.

I found very interesting to see how they have handled the Croatian side of things and confess I find it spotless.

I have not finished it yet, but can only echo other friends on TOCH.
Just buy it!! It's worth every penny!!!

Look forward Boris to more history from former dusty Yugoslavian archives...
Cheers
Stig
