La Luftwaffe face au débarquement: Normandie 6 juin - 31 août 1944 (French Edition)

To anyone who owns the book by Jean-Bernard Frappé, could you summarize what the book offers for information? Are the operations detailed day-to-day from June 6th to Aug 31 on a tactical level or is it more operational? Maps? Loss / Claims list for both sides?

I can't find any reviews and the book is pricey. I'm hoping to find more information to make a decision on a purchase.

Thanks.

Each chapter is devoted to a Bf 109 or Fw 190 Gruppe and gives a day-by-day account of its operations, victories and losses. There are also appendices listing each day’s German claims and losses plus a list of wrecked 109s and 190s found in France.

This new edition is about 100 pages bigger than the original version.

REALLY!? WHOA! Imagine all the missions a campaign creator for IL2 Sturmovik could make with that kind of information.
