    I am looking for a good reference on the Focke-Wulf Fw 190D variants. Peter Rodeike's book is reputedly the seminal reference on the Fw 190, but it seems difficult to find. However, during my search, I found the following:

    Focke-Wulf FW 190 Long Nose: An Illustrated History of the FW 190 D Series by Dietmar Harmann

    I'd be appreciative for any opinions or thoughts about this work, particularly its comprehensiveness in covering the lesser-known 190D variants. Thanks much for any input.

    Thanks for the suggestion. However, I understand Crandall's book covers primarily the Fw190D-9, and I'm looking for a reference that includes the 190D-9's less famous cousins also. I've heard good things about Crandall's book, though, and I'll check it out.

    wait for EE's volume 2 on the Dora as it will cover the sub-variants and have updates on the 1st volume
