This is another indispensable element of a thorough Fw 190D library. If you are familiar with Jerry’s Vol 1, then you know what to expect: very colorful printing, appealing layouts, quality binding and high quality paper stock. All this to present some truly fabulous photographs and color artwork. The text comprises some good first hand accounts and stories of pilots that Jerry usually includes to add a personal dimension. This one is more weighted to the technical than Vol 1 was, but it is still very enjoyable. I, for one, found the new info/photos on the Fw 190 D-11 very interesting. I have waited for this volume since I was aware of it, and I am pleased to have spent the money on it. I have almost all of the Eagle offerings - 3 of them the limited edition signed copies (Graf and Grislawski, The Yoxford Boys and Green Hearts) - and they have been worth every dollar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dora Part Deux, November 24, 2009
By selrach - See all my reviews
The follow-up opus of Jerry Crandall, Focke-Wulf 190 Dora Volume Two in some sense does not wax as rhapsodic as the first but in many ways is just as important. Sure, Jerry could have teased us with slightly different color stills from same film clips that were used for Volume 1. Instead we are treated to new previously unpublished black and white photos, excerpts of important documents, color photos of crash site relics and very thorough compilations of other important D9 to D13 data. Very interesting details about underwing rockets! Much to his credit, in one of the lists he displays all known data of remains of planes recovered from crash sites. We can infer that the greens 82 and 83 were very much in use on these late war aircraft, especially those built by Focke-Wulf. In every way Crandall is as straightforward and as thorough as possible in explaining his conclusions. There are interesting personal stories as well. If you are at all into the subject of late war Luftwaffe aircraft or camouflage this book is a `must have’. I bought one and am glad I did!

Now, in the interest of science:

Excellent as the book is, this reader does not necessarily agree with all of Crandall’s interpretations. For the sake of discussion here are the three examples with attempted rationale.

The photo documented D9’s made in Kassel by Fieseler such as `Red 1’, the mount of Heino Sachsenberg of JV44, are known to be either entirely in the two gray scheme or grays with a green 83 on the cowling area. The fuzzy, unique color photo of Red 1 supports this idea. Some additional patches of 83 are seen on the tail, perhaps added in the field. There is no indication that green 82 was used as a base color on the fuselage from the cockpit rearward as is depicted in the artists’ renderings. Unglamorous grays seem the more likely shades instead.

In another example, Crandall supports the current wisdom that the oft photographed `Blue 12’ of JG 6 had the rear fuselage painted in brown 81. If so, the well known color shot of the starboard side indicates a light, non-standard brown if brown at all. Color prints of the port side as seen in JaPo book, "Focke-Wulf Fw 190D Camouflage and Markings Part II" (p397) shows the area in question as medium gray. The color views in Vol 1 (p264) of `Black 8’, the factory mate of Blue 12 also show this area as gray not brown.


About the Author

As a historian, Jerry Crandall s main interest is WWII, specifically the air war over Europe. Due to his extensive study and the need for this valuable information to be preserved Crandall has created numerous paintings, prints and has written several books on this topic. In his quest for historical accuracy he has interviewed pilots who have served in WWII, Korea, the cold war and post war seeking invaluable first hand information for his research. Through the years he has amassed a large collection of rare photos of WWII aircraft highlighting extremely rare images of Luftwaffe fighters plus he has collected personal interview tapes with pilots and crew members, actual aircraft parts and other aviation related materials. He worked at McDonnell Douglas Aircraft Company as an aviation artist; has been a guest on numerous radio and television talk shows including the NBC Sunday show in LA twice, and the Mike Douglas Television Show. He was a guest on the Navy Carrier USS Nimitz gathering knowledge of modern day Naval operations. Featured articles about Jerry Crandall and his work have appeared in many magazines; FLIGHT, PRINTS, COLLECTORS MART, SOUTHWEST ART, MAN AT ARMS, AIR CLASSICS, INTERNATIONAL AIR REVIEW, US ART, THE CHALLENGE AVIATION ART SERIES and more. Listed in WHO S WHO IN AMERICAN ART, THE INTERNATIONAL WHO S WHO OF CONTEMPORARY ACHIEVEMENT, and WHO S WHO IN THE WEST, he is also featured in CONTEMPORARY WESTERN ARTISTS. Too, his artwork can be found in many private as well as museum collections such as the COMMEMORATIVE AIR FORCE, NATIONAL AIR AND SPACE MUSEUM IN D.C.; USAF MUSEUM DAYTON; NAVAL MUSEUM PENSACOLA; MONINO AIR MUSEUM, MOSCOW and at the Headquarters of the ITALIAN AIR FORCE. He is a member of the ASAA, the Luftwaffe Circle, the Luftwaffe Verband, IPMS, FRIEND OF THE AMERICAN FIGHTER ACES, THE GEMEINSCHAFT DER JAGDFLIEGER and many others. Through the years he has arranged for various History Channel and A&E programs to feature and interview noted pilots who served with the Luftwaffe in WWII. In the early 1990s the Crandalls arranged the first of many WWII aviation symposiums held in Phoenix, Atlanta, and Los Angeles where pilots told of their various war time experiences with Jerry as the moderator. Jerry Crandall s life study has been the aircraft, types of aircraft, the idiosyncrasies of the aircraft, the camouflage, color schemes and markings of each individual unit and the total evolution of the fighter forces and cross referencing the various combat air battles highlighting WWII.
