When Italy entered the Second World War they had no reasonable dive
bomber aircraft. Fortunately, there German allies had an excellent
candidate in the Ju 87 Stuka. The Italians were able to acquire some of
these, mainly the B-2 and R-2 variants, which they put to good use.
This book covers these aircraft during their service with the Regia
Aeronautica. The text is in Italian (to the left of each page) and
English (to the right).
The only disappointment is that the colour profiles do not clearly
show the demarcation beween camouflage colours although this may be due

Having said that, I stil think that this book will be a plus for your
library, especially if you are interested in the Stuka or the Regia
Aeronautica for the review sample.
