French vs German Aircraft Losses 1940

Am searching for information on the German vs French airforces in May-June 1940. Specifically fighter plane losses on each side. I know there are some good sources on this in the French language, which I am unable to easily obtain. Any refrences in English are appreciated, but I am hoping to locate someone who has studied this subject & who can answer some of my questions.

Thanks & Merci for any answers.

Sir,
You may find the book,"Battle of France Then and Now," to be useful. It gives a daily breakdown of the losses of all the combatants involved

Hello Carl
from http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/aviation/dewoitone-520-question-32212.html

Counting individual cases in "Battle of France-Then and Now", D520's shot down 14 Bf109E's for loss of 30 D520's to Bf109E's, about the same kill ratio as Hurricane v 109 in BoF, .5:1, a bit worse than the Hawk 75 (.6:1), but considerably better than the older generation French fighters (Ms406, Bloch etc which went around .3:1 v the Bf109E)...


and You will find official numbers of the Adel’A's losses from here Allied and Soviet Air Forces http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/showthread.php?t=6375
