Aircraft of the Aces #06: FW 190 Aces of the Russian Frontby John Weal
Synopses & Reviews
Of all the fronts fought on by the Jagdflieger during World War 2, the Russian, or Eastern, was easily the most lucrative in terms of targets for the experten. Marry an abundance of targets with the Luftwaffes best piston-engined fighter of the war - Focke-Wulfs Fw 190 ‘Butcher Bird - and it quickly becomes apparent why so many Jagdflieger achieved kills that passed the 100 victories mark. Flying in variable weather on a battlefront that was constantly changing, the Fw 190 pilots fought virtually to extinction in both the pure fighter and the crucial Schlacht ground attack roles.
About the Author
Arguably the finest profile artist in the business, John Weals love of German aircraft makes his work a treat for students of the subject. He has written several Aces volumes, and two books on the JU 87 in the companion series Combat Aircraft.
