While the title might be a bit of a mouthful, the rest of this book
more than makes up for it.
The artwork is amongst the best that I have seen, and it covers all
the aircraft used by the Regia Aeronautica in the fighter and ground
attack roles. Home grown, German and French types are all there.
Part One of this series of books covered camouflage and markings up
to 1940. This issue (Part Two) describes from 1940 until the armistice.
The text explains colour changes and the reasons for various markings.
In a separate chapter, all the colours are described and detail of their
uses is provided.
This book will be greatly appreciated by anyone interested in the
Italian Air Force and by most of the rest of us as well! I can't
recommend this book highly enough.
Thanks to IBN for the review sample.
