New Book:"la JG54,les aigles au coeur vert de la luftwaffe

Hello all

I just bought yesterday that book (49 euros in france)

My first impression is not very good.
the publisher announces approximately 850 photos and more 380 pages(last page of the book),BUT ONLY 813 photos and 304 pages!!

Under a "modern" presentation (photos among the text),easy reading (for French) and reads like a novel.
-no lists of day-to-day claims
-many,many known photos,others useless (as page 221)
-lists of losses by era
-some periods are "botched":June 1942 to December 1942 (only 38 pages!),ex:the fights of the 28,29,30 December summarized only a few lines.

Best Regards

Michel

Is there something new about Kittel's or Nowotny's personal planes?

Thanks
Flavio

.. admittedly not 850, but not bad for 304 pages! As for 'known' photos, well of course, you could hardly leave them out without spoiling the 'story'. Personally there are plenty that are 'new' to me although some of them are necessarily a little small. And for every page 221 ( a view taken from the ground of a Staffel at altitude) you have a page 261 (four views of Helmut Biederbick's 'white 7')
