Hi Ed, a couple weeks ago Classics told me it was finished up at the binders, and expected it to be available "in about 4 weeks". Take care, Dan

Re: Me 262 Production Log release date?

I saw the book yesterday, definitely not for the faint of heart. It's a massive work, it clearly contains the best informations regarding every 262 known.

Part 1 covers every WkNr known with a text varying from half a page to just a few lines depending on the informations known about it. A good job has been done towards mentionning the sources which is definitely needed with such a work.

part 2 cover the unknown wknr mentionned in losses or through pictures or other documents. The amount of text being proportional to what is known about them.

It's a great reference document, featuring few pictures (most well known) and a massive listing of details of the a/c. Clearly it's not a book you buy expecting to read it from the beginning to the end, but it's a most needed reference to anyone interested in either the type or the Luftwaffe losses or a/c listings.

Good job Dan

I suggest you prepare some addenda/errate page on your site as it would be i think a nice addition.

Thank you for that description of the contents, Olivier. I had planned to ask for one because there is certainly no lack of books on the Me 262 already, and I was wondering how it differed from "The Me 262 combat diary." You have clarified that beautifully, thank you again.
George

Re: Me 262 Production Log release date?

Dear Olefebvre (Oliver),

My first book review :-) Your kind words are greatly appreciated. I had two goals in this work, 1: to find just how many really were built (that work continues), and 2: to clear up the 60+ years of mythology we all see re-printed over and over again. If it's in the book, it's documented, mostly from original war time documents. Some of the findings are quite surprising.
We had a great number of photos to choose from, however there was just to much text to allow printing many. Although many of the photos are well known, they are correctly identified to the best of my ability. The gentlemen at Classics are true professionals, and to their credit, stuck with the text.
I hope you all learn from it, as much as I did in preparing it. Very best, Dan
