Fight in the Balkan
Very scarce picture / photo documentary book about the South-Eastern Front.
What makes this really hard to find is that it was published specifically for the officers of the 8th Flying Command
(VIII. Fliegerkorps) and not available for purchase by the general public.
It is an excellent pictorial memento with text and hundreds of photo pictures and drawn illustrations; many in full Agfa color, which
was way ahead of its time. All sorts of aircraft are shown with their pilots and crews, personalities of the airforce are featured,
allies, ceremonies, charts, paratroops, battle scenes, ground troops, images of the native people and lands etc.

In good exterior and very good-fine interior condition.
