LUFTWAFFE WAR DIARY: Pilots & Aces: Uniforms & Equipment.
Uwe Feist and Thomas McGuirl's LUFTWAFFE WAR DIARY appears to be a repackaging of the two-volume LUFTWAFFE DIARY set published back in 1994.
In any case, the Feist/McGuirl should delight Luftwaffe buffs as it offers up hundreds of b&w and color photographs and artwork depicting GAF aircrew, uniforms, flying gear, medals, a/c markings and air combat scenes along with short biographies of various experten. The pix - numbering around 300 - are both vintage shots and contemporary images of uniforms, medals, etc. held by collectors. Visually the book is a delight.
After a brief section on 'Learn to Fly,' the book details and illustrates the various Luftwaffe ranks, GAF fighter pilots in WW II, 'The 300 Club' (Hartmann and Barkhorn), Luftwaffe fighter aces and GAF equipment and uniforms.
The Feist/McGuirl book sells for $39.95, which seems reasonable. Considering the wealth of illustrations, LUFTWAFFE WAR DIARY is a must-have for GAF enthusiasts. Recommended.
