    This book contains many historical Black & White photos of the FW190 in service between 1939 and 1943. 90% of the book is dedicated to photos. Most of the information provided is written descriptions to support the photos.The best use of this book is for those in need of FW190 pictures to support a modeling paint scheme or other historical art requirements.

    I don't like books like these about WW II fighter aviation, because it seems to me that the only (although noble and hard) job the writer had to do was to scrap a pile of photos and then discover who is photographed in each photo. There's no action, no coherent chain of events describing the real value and the characters of the men who flew the Butcher Bird in WW II.

    This book, like other Luftwaffe At War titles I have read, is basically a photo album. It begins with a brief overview of the development of the Fw190, and its variants. The remainder of the book is all photographs. Each photo is accompanied by a caption. It would be nice to have a little more information on the aircraft, especially text and pictures explaining the differences in the variants produced.This book is good for those that just have a little interest in German aircraft, or aircraft in general. For those that want in depth information, look elsewhere.I gave it three stars, as the standard of the photos is very high.
