Hi folks,
from some time i'm looking for a book or site,or any other type of reference for the WW2 (and mostly german) aerial combat formations and tactics.
But it seems that i can't find any...
So does anyone of you guys know any well written book or reference site about this?

ps: I dunno if i remember correct,but i also think that theer was a book for the WW2 formations and tactics in Osprey collection,but i can't remember the exact name of the book.
Does anybody knows more about that?

Hi mate,

you might find your answer here:

http://mission4today.com/index...file=details&id=3431 (http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=3431)

- it is a 70 page bombing manual for IL2, written by me few months ago. It coveres formation flying and everything related to formations - from basic elements to large formations. You will find all important formations used in WW2 there except Javelin Down.
