Item description for The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 in North Africa by Andrew Arthy, Morten Jessen & Claes Sundin...
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. Includes appendices with complete loss and victory lists, camouflage and markings of Fw 190s in North Africa, and Fw 190 captured in Tunisia. After three years of in-depth research, the story of the pilots and units that flew the Fw 190 in North Africa can now be told. Using over 100 photos, many from private collections, plus illustrations and profiles, the authors describe the interesting story of the air war fought over Tunisia and Algeria from the view of the Fw 190 pilots.
