The book also features short chapters on Bf 109 Ds in Swiss service and camouflage and markings of early Bf 109s.

 

 

Bf 109 Aces of the Western Front (Osprey "Aircraft of the Aces" Series #29)
By John Weal

This book charts the story of the myriad aces who flew the later marks of Messerschmitt fighter through VE-Day. As good as the Emil had been during the opening 18 months of the war, the aircraft was being progressively bettered in virtually all aspects of aerial combat by the Spitfire after 1941, so Messerschmitt updated and improved the breed, firstly with the introduction of the Friedrich and then the multi-variant Gustav.

 

 

Dogfight: The Supermarine Spitfire and the Messerschmitt BF109
By David Owen

Innumerable books have been published on the two most famous fighter aircraft of all time, the Supermarine Spitfire and the Messerschmitt Bf109. But books setting out to tell the story of both aircraft are very much rarer -- probably fewer than the fingers of one hand. Yet their joint story is one which bears retelling since both were essential to the air campaigns of World War Two.
