    Always nice to see a book about this bird.
    The front cover seems to be a mirror image of German Jet Aces of WWII. (a cheap solution)

    I can't understand why Osprey (John Weal in particular) have never done a JG26 'Schlageter' book for the Aviation Elite series

    I even e-mailed John Weal via Osprey once, more or less (politely) demanding such a project from him!

    My guess is that they will get around to everthing eventually.

    Robert Forsyth also wrote the 'Galland Circus' so I was stoked to find out he was doing this one, as that one is like gold now.
