Dear fellow Luftwaffe enthusiasts,

Morten Jessen and I are very pleased to announce the launch of a new publishing company called Air War Publications. The aim of the company is to produce high-quality books about the operations, units and personnel of the Luftwaffe and Allied air forces during the Second World War.

The first book available from Air War Publications is ‘Focke-Wulf Fw 190 in the Battle for Sicily’. This title covers the service of Fw 190 units in the Mediterranean theatre in the four-month period from the Axis surrender in North Africa to the invasion of the Italian mainland, with the focus on the role of the Fw 190 in the Sicilian campaign of July and August 1943. It features many first-hand accounts from personnel of both sides, along with numerous photographs, maps, and colour aircraft profiles. The book describes many eventful and successful Fw 190 anti-shipping operations and attacks on Allied landing forces. It also describes the serious problems hampering Fw 190 operations, such as the devastating Allied bombing campaign against Sicilian airfields, a severe lack of operational aircraft, and the pressure placed on senior Fw 190 unit leaders by their superiors, including the threats of court martial made against two of them. This title is a sequel to the book ‘Focke-Wulf Fw 190 in North Africa’, written by the same authors.

The book specifications are:
Size: 25 x 31,5 cm
Format: hardcover, 224 pages in colour
137 black-and-white & 3 colour photographs
11 colour aircraft profiles by Claes Sundin
16 colour maps, 4 emblems & 12 illustrations
10 appendices, including loss & victory lists, camouflage & markings information, tactics, escort fighter material, statistical tables, & aircraft profiles with information for modellers

The book has received a very favourable review, which can be found here: http://scaleplasticandrail.com/kaboom/i ... for-sicily

Please visit http://www.airwarpublications.com for further information, a book sample, free downloads of additional book-related material, and more.

We have several future book projects under development, covering various air campaigns and Luftwaffe units, the most advanced of which are ‘Air War Courland’, and ‘Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Defending Southern Italy’.

Kind regards,
Andrew Arthy & Morten Jessen

Air War Publications
