This book is not about just any Fw 190s pilots who shot down USAAF heavies, only those who did so in the apocalyptic Defense of the Reich campaign.

Looks like a great read for any avid aviation historian, which all modelers are to one degree or another! I would like to add this copy to my library. That FW190D was an extraordinary machine, I think it was the best mass produced single engine German fighter of the war. Addressing the limitations of performance at altitude of the earlier FW-190A. Thanks Fred for a great review. Russell

I agree with Russell, I think there are interested historians in most modelers. This sounds like a very goog addition to the library Fred. Excellent review.
All the best.
