i dont know, what is the best, but i have a IMHO good book, called " FW190/Ta152 by Motorbuchverlag.
its not about the Dora only. its about the whole FW/Ta family.
but now the bad thing, it is in german .

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably worse than the Uhu Segelflieger aus Balsaholz. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an Uhu Balsaholzflieger pilot whose plane I failed to down.

Sounds interesting.

I can read German btw, I live about a mile off the German border. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I can recommend Dietmar Hermann's book "Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Long Nose: An Illustrated History of the Fw 190 D Series". It's not purely a D-9 book though, but it is really good IMHO. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

When it comes to aircombat, I'd rather be lucky than good any day!
