    We are announcing the first release of the new series of books detailing specific aircraft flown by the Luftwaffe during WWII. Following the same format as the familiar and popular Wings of the Black Cross, each Special will provide supporting text and background, expanded photo coverage plus additional color profiles.
    The initial release will focus on the Messerschmitt Bf 110 as it saw service throughout the war in many different roles. This 52 page book, includes a brief history of the aircraft and its various operational roles, both day and night, and concludes with a concise history of the aircraft’s camouflage and markings. Of the 77 photos, most are unpublished from the private collection of Mark Proulx plus a few from selected contributors, and are presented in large format. Extensive captioning provides specific details found in each image.
