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 to the printing process. Other titles from this publisher have much clearer profiles.

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.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to La Bancarella Aeronautica for the review sample.
