    Found this posted over at LEMB and I thought it might be of interest. Some interesting stuff in the "book related material" link in the "Articles and Dowloads" tab of the publisher's website.


    Hello everyone,

    We’d like to share the latest news from Air War Publications with you.

    Our first book, Focke-Wulf Fw 190 in the Battle for Sicily, continues to receive favourable reviews and comments, many of which can be found on the reviews page of the company site.

    Customers in the United States can now obtain the book via Amazon.com.

    We are also pleased to be able to share two more interesting items of book-related bonus material, which can be found on the company website. The bonus material includes the following:

    USAAF victory claims against the Fw 190
    This bonus material matches USAAF aerial victory claims for Fw 190s with known data from the German perspective in the period 14 May 1943 to 2 September 1943. This has been produced with the permission of Frank Olynyk, whose USAAF victory claims list provided the basis for this bonus material. USAAF and Luftwaffe units have been identified for almost every combat listed in the document.

    Technical Notes
    This bonus material covers various technical aspects of the service of the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 in the Mediterranean theatre between 14 May 1943 and 2 September 1943, including: the aircraft repair and maintenance situation; Fw 190 variants operated in Sicily, Sardinia and Italy in the summer of 1943; weaponry used by the Fw 190 units; and other Fw 190 equipment such as tyres, drop tanks and radios.


    There has been quite a bit of interest expressed in our Air War Courland project, and we are happy to say that work is continuing steadily on this book, in co-operation with our Russian co-author. The other priority book project for Air War Publications is Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Defending Southern Italy, and it too is progressing nicely. If anyone is able to provide us with documents or photographs relevant to either of these projects, we’d love to hear from you.


    Best Regards,
    Andrew Arthy Morten Jessen

    To be honest this was a kind of advertisement. Removing the link at the bottom of the letter I have made it a kind of info.
