have been seen in other publications
is tough to write a book about the Messerschmitt Bf 109. So much has been
written, yet so much remains misunderstood.
Robert Peczkowski has taken the sensible route of limiting
his subject matter to the Messerschmitt Bf 109G, and narrowing his focus
to concentrate on the detail of variants. This focus makes the book of
particular interest to modellers.
The author achieves his objective through mainly through
line drawings and captioned walkaround photos of museum aircraft. The text
is quite brief.
The book's structure is logically laid out with a chapter
for each variant in the order of service introduction.
Given the great interest in the Messerschmitt Bf 109G this
book should prove popular. If your personal reference library does not
already include specific detailed material on the Bf 109G (such as the
Prien and Rodeike book on the Bf 109F, G and K series or the Aero Detail
book on the Bf 109G), then this book will be an economical and useful
addition to your collection.
