This is a great book by Osprey. It focuses in the early years of WWII, from the Polish campaign to the battle of Britain, arguably the golden years of the Luftwaffe and of the 109. This book's chapters make a nice mix between, the evolution of the (Bf-109) machine in battle, on one side, and the stories of the men who fought, and even died, in it. Pilots like Môlders, Galland and Wick made a name in this years. The stories are telled by units and pilots alike, it comes with very nice tables (like Bf-109E iron cross recipients, unit listings), full colour aircraft profile drawing plates (30+), and 6 pilot figure drawing plates, all with explanations at the end of the book. Also has scale plans of the variants cited in the volume. All around the texts, are inserted Black and white images, which also brings support for the Colour profiles. This book make a valuable reference resource for military model makers, for Bf-109 early war aces, this book is a must.
