Guys what books do u recommend for good reading on the FW190A's, th D9, and the TA152? I want to read something that has info on its performance, comparison with other aircraft, accounts from pilots who flew them, etc. I heard that Peter Rodeike's Jagdflugzeug 190 is a good one but I've given up looking for it and I think its only in german anyways.

Anything from Herman Dietmar (I know I butcherd his name). Also the Squadron signal books are good as well

"Green hearts first in combat with the Dora" by Axel Urbanke is an awesome book, but be warned, it has a very hefty price tag. (In Holland 99,- Euros)

Another good one is "Sturmstaffel 1" about the up-armoured A8s in combat with, well... the Sturmstaffel. Not so expensive but not very hefty either.

I read book called Focke Wulf Fw 190 in Combat
by Alfred Price a while ago. Thought it was quite good also.

Like FW 190D-9 said, anything by Dietmar Harmann, he's done 3 books on 190A, 190D, and Ta 152 Series. Also Kagero books "Wild Sau" and the aircraft Monograph series "Focke Wulf FW 190" by same publisher. Expect four books in the Kagero series. Also the book "The History of German Aviation: Kurt Tank" by Wolgang Wagner. Follow link below for the full list of Schiffer books.
