    DescriptionThis the first of a comprehensive three-volume reference book on the iconic Focke Wulf FW190-arguably the finest fighter aircraft of World War 2. The books are the product of years of research by two of the leading experts into this complex aircraft to produce the complete work on the FW190. Each volume contains some four hundred photographs including those showing factory and manufacturing, close-ups of weapons and equipment and operational units, as well as numerous facsimiles of Focke-Wulf handbook drawings. Color artwork will also be included, plus an extensive selection of original manufacturer's technical drawings. When it first appeared in the skies over France in late 1941, the pugnacious, radial-engined Focke-Wulf FW190 represented a formidable and ominous foe to the RAF. This new volume is in the large hardback Classic format, densely packed and illustrated, representing a one-stop reference work to be used by enthusiasts and modelers for easy access to information on the FW190.

    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 established Classic Publications with Robert Forsyth. He again cooperated 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.
