Publisher Comments:

The follow-on volume to Osprey Aircraft of the Aces 11 - Bf 109D/E Aces 1939-41, this book charts the story of the myriad aces who flew the later marks of Messerschmitt fighter through to VE-Day. As good as the Emil had been during the opening 18 months of the war, the aircraft was being progressively bettered in virtually all aspects of aerial combat by the Spitfire come 1941, so Messerschmitt updated and improved the breed, firstly with the introduction of the Friedrich and then the multi-variant Gustav.

Synopsis:

A myriad aces flew the later marks of Messerschmitt's legendary Bf109 fighter through to VE-Day. More than 2,000 F series were built before production switched solely to the the G, or "Gustav." A staggering 30,000 Gustavs were built between 1941 and 1945, which included no fewer than nine major subvariants.

Synopsis:

This volume charts the story of the Aces who flew the later types of Messerschmitt fighters through to VE-Day. The detailed text explains the tactics crews used, lists tables of the units involved and lists all the BF Aces. Archival photographs sourced from around the world are included.
