I recieved a copy of the hardback edition direct from the publisher two weeks ago, will get around to reading it in due course having only been able to have a quick flick through it and isolated reads at sections, my impression is that it is well worth the pirce.

Re: New Book - Luftwaffe Eagles Over Ireland

A copy has been ordered , looking forward to seeing it in due course.

A bilingual version - God I wish I knew...
