Product description

This is the second of a comprehensive three-volume reference work on the iconic Focke Wulf FW 190--arguably the finest piston-engined fighter aircraft of World War 2. The books are the product of years of study by two of the leading researchers. Each volume contains more than four hundred photographs including those showing factory and construction, close-ups of weapons and equipment, operational units, and numerous facsimiles of Focke-Wulf handbook drawings. Color artwork is also included, plus an extensive selection of original manufacturer's technical drawings. This volume looks at the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A6-A10 and D series and the FW 190 F and G fighter bomber development, covering the first operations by the Schlachtgeschwader until spring 1943; the FW 190 A-6 and A-7 and operations until the end of 1943; the FW 190 A-8 to A-10 and operations in the west until June 1944; the FW 190 A operations in the east until June 1944; and ground-attack operations until June 1944. An appendix details Werknummer batches and manufacturers.

Author information

J. Richard Smith and Eddie J. Creek have been researching Luftwaffe aircraft for over forty years, publishing their first book, "German Aircraft of the Second World War," in 1972. After retiring as an architect in 1991, Eddie Creek established Classic Publications with Robert Forsyth. He again co-operated with Richard Smith in the production of an acclaimed four-volume history of the Me 262, published by Classic, and this was followed by several volumes on the Luftwaffe fighter and bomber units and their markings for Classic.
