The "Long Nose" - 18th Jan 2018

The Focke Wulf Fw190 "Long Nose": An Illustrated History of the Fw 190D Series
by Dietmar Hermann

As the title suggests, this book covers the complete development history of Focke-Wulf Fw190, or at least those powered by inline engines. The first one had a Daimler Benz liquid-cooled engine and the next a Jumo 213. A couple of years later, the Fw 190 D-9 powered by a Jumo 213A took to the skies and was a huge success with the Luftwaffe. 1700 had been produced by the end of World War Two.

I have no idea what I'm talking about really. I have just paraphrased the blurb on the dust jacket to get that little paragraph. I know nothing about military aviation history (or anything to do with aeronautics come to that) but we have loads of excellent books on the subject so you could browse on the website or come in and have a look at what we have in the shop. It's not just the individual aircraft (such as the McDonnel Douglas F4 Phantom II) but also biographies of great airmen (such as Ernst Udet) and much much more.
