Re: My library - you rate it!

I'd say your alias is a pretty good indication of your interests: German armored vehicles and equipment, the SS, the Luftwaffe and aircraft in general, the German high command, the 3rd Reich, German pilots and soldiers, some naval warfare and some WW1.

It's a decent library that you've probably been building up over the past 10 years or so. It has some breadth but not much depth or focus, except maybe on the SS. You're interested in warfare and warriors in general, and the European theater of WW2 in particular. You're more interested in tactics than strategy, and battles rather than campaigns. You occasionally splurge on an expensive book, but you generally stay within your budget. You don't speak any other languages, so you stick to what's available in English. You might be an armor modeler that also dabbles in aircraft.

Re: My library - you rate it!

Adding to what tagjagd said, Hooton's Eagle in Flames is good but to complete his work and get a good overall picture (as it seems is your intention) you need the forerunning volume, 'Phoenix Triumphant, the Rise and Rise of the Luftwaffe (Brockhampton Press, 1994)' and Alfred Price's 'Last Year of the Luftwaffe, May 1944 - May 1945 (Greenhill Books, 1991)'

Otherwise, some good title in there

Regarding the Austro-Hungarian aces of WW I I can recommend you Martin O'Connor's book, not the Osprey stuffz.

Osprey is all right if one is new to a subject or if there is no other information available in English, but other than that they are basically overprice pamphlets.

Re: My library - you rate it!

A library is something too much personal to discuss about it in general terms. It depends on the topics you focus on, your bank account and the room to stock books. Though we are both interested in WW2 aviation, your library is not mine and mine would have little interest to you.

I guess that depends very much on the topic. For example I thought the Elite Units book on the 359th FG was very good and I paid not much more than a fiver for it.

Re: My library - you rate it!

Osprey's WWI stuff is actually pretty good. In this area they've assembled a very good group of authors - Greg van Wyngarden, Jon Guttman, Norman Franks and company have been doing this stuff for years for Albatros/Windsock, Cross and Cockades and Over the Front. Many others are also notables in their particular fields. Wish I could say the same for the whole series.
