Brand New Book 

The Focke-Wulf was already a feared opponent on the Channel Front when it appeared in North Africa in November 1942 and, though perceived by many to have been the fighter 'workhorse' of the Luftwaffe on the Western and Eastern fronts during World War II, the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 also served in unit strength in North Africa from late 1942 until the German collapse in May 1943.

This new book is a day-to-day account of the air war over Tunisia and Algeria told through war diaries and first-hand accounts from both the German and Allied pilots who flew in the theater. The book is illustrated throughout with lots of black and white photographs, and includes appendices detailing aircraft and personnel casualties of North African Fw 190 units, Fw 190 Aerial victories in Tunisia and Sicily, Fw 190 Jabo Escort in North Africa, camouflage and markings of Fw 190s that served in North Africa, and Fw 190's captured in Tunisia. Chapters include:

  • The early desert war
  • Erprobungskommando 19
  • III./ZG.2 in North Africa
