Regarding your link to 10 April 1945, this from Bletchley Park Air Operational Watch report CX/MSS/OPD 1504: "An Ar 234 of 1./FAG 1was due up from Stavanger at 16.00. This was probably the aircraft plotted 50 miles northeast of Rattray Head 17.18–17.43." So it wasn't actually over Scotland.

But, my apologies, I'm taking us way off the topic of a book about KG 76.

I'm glad you mentioned the upcoming Osprey title. Good books in English about Ar 234 operations are relatively few, and clearly there is a market for more. For example, the lone JaPo publication in the Luftwaffe Over Czech Territory series that includes Ar 234 final operations. It is sold out. (From a review: "There are 15 aircraft covered and importantly, each is backed up by accompanying reference photos. Also included is an Ar 234C-3 which is part of the authors’ discussion on the final operations of Ar 234Bs and Cs by 1.(F)/100 and III./EKG 1.")

That said, this book is in my top three for purchase.
