Opis produktu:

Messerschmitt Bf 110: Bombsights over England Erprobungsgruppe 210 in the Battle of Britain

This it does exceptionally well. You get a brief history of the group's embryonic stage, its formation, and then the posting to Dinain, France. Vasco provides a cursory description of the armaments, performances, and capabilities of the aircraft of the unit ( Bf-110 variants and the Bf 109E ). Also covered are the different tactics for bomb delivery used by group 210.
The author is very thorough in his research and the reader learns the operations and the fate ( with rare exceptions when information is unavailable ) of every aircraft flown by the group. We get accounts from both the German and British side of engagements, both on the ground and in the air. Group 210 personnel are covered thoroughly, though, as appropriate and standard in such histories, one does not get to "know" any of them in a personal or intimate manner.Vasco furnishes his brief analysis of the group's overall effectiveness and their significance in the history of fighter-bomber operations.
Photo coverage is superb. Vasco, to my mind, does a fine job in two critical arenas: He has many good shots of aircraft and equipment; equally important, he shows the crews and their essential humanity; i.e. like their RAF counterparts, they are mostly barely post-adolescent and imbued with the accompanying irreverence and humor essential to psychological survival in such circumstances.
Lastly, this particular edition exhibits the highest level of binding and paper quality, the pages being on thick, coated stock.
