This book is a re-issue of the early 90s.Original published in 1945. I use it as a reference. attachicon.gif9781855019966-us-300.jpg

Even though Jeff have urged Me to contribute, I haven't been around the bookshelf yet, however this one might be the only one of mine wich matches the subject, as I expect the rudimetary pocket book achieved in My kit building teenage years is lost.
Buying this was based in a 100DKR bargain suddenly appearing in the window of a bookstore I passed every workday: The heavy Jane's Encyclopedia of Aviation. The book that I had to look into at every visit at the library during My childhood.
With such bargain at the shelf, My attention of bookstore sales rised and at a point was this Jane's WW2' likely to get for reasonable money. As the original Jane's included the same aircraft, I found the included section with the worlds aero engines from the period the most attractive.
Speaking of: If only I had remembered this, I might have been able to solve the soccer-player Homare Sawa -question in RT's recent quizz :-(

No need to be sorry. I've had a great life and learned heaps about other places that I never would have as a tourist.


Oh yes. The Å in Ålborg (or was it Århus?) isn't for every foreighner to know about ;-)

     That is a great picture on the cover Stoney. Seeing the Jane's name on the cover

made me do a quick look over my book shelves. The only Jane's I could find was

Jane's Aircraft Recognition Guide by Gunter Endres & Mike Gething, 2002. I received

this book as a present. It is very limited in knowledge about the WW2 aircraft, though

has a lot. It would make a quick reference for someone more interested in jet aircraft

up to 2002.

I borrowed the picture from the internet....The book to big to fit on the scanner.....But mine is the same.

I have several Recognition books, but none of them are from Jane's. The youngest one is from the 1960's.... I also have one that was issued to dutch schoolchildren in ww2 by the nazis...In the enemy section you will find Allied aircraft....

     The following books are in the same 'Duelsset' as the five books I listed for 

DOGFIGHTS in post #19. I received all of them in the last couple of years by

asking for them for my birthday, Father's day and Christmas. I think I was able

to acquire one of them for Valentine's day last year by letting my wife know that

I had gotten her an expensive (not that expensive) gift making her want to get

me something good. ;)

     P-38 Lightning vs. Ki-61 Tony, / Donald Nijboer

          I was actually able to read this entire book for free on line with something

          like Bookshare, or Bookveiw....?

     Seafire vs. A6M, Duel 16  / one of the books included in DOGFIGHTS.

     La-5/7 vs. Fw 190, Duel 39 / Dmitriy Khazanov & Aleksander Medved.

     F4F Wildcat vs. A6M Zero-sen, Duel 54 / Edward M. Young.

     Spitfire V vs. C.202 Folgore, Duel 60 / Donald Nijboer.

     Bf 109E/f vs. Yak-1/7, Duel 65 / Dmitriy Khazanov & Aleksander Medved.

     F4U Corsair vs. Ki-84 "Frank", Duel 73 / Edward M. Young.

All excellent books. I try to buy them used and that way even with

the cost of shipping they fall in the $8-$13 range. Well worth the

price. :)

     Some of my older mainstay books of past (I still use them as quick reference though

somewhat limited information). That is not to say that they are not valuable in my quest

for knowledge of WW2 aircraft performance and timelines.

This book cost $14.95 in 1968 it can be had in good condition for $9.99 or very good conditon

for $21.09. It actually can be had for about $4.50 if you don't need the jacket and don't care too

much about the condition.

I wonder about the web have increased our expectations of pictures and intense tech detail beyond what vintage books might provide :-/
However, when Jeff, the number-crusher, can express satisfaction they might at least be factual?
