Can anyone recommend a good Me109 book, something with performance figures(not just max speed)? I have several 109 books aleady, but most of them are either picture books or just give lots of non-performance information. I'm looking for something like Hermann's book on the 190D, or America's Hundred Thousand, or Soviet Combat Aircraft, but for F-K model 109's. Also, I need the book to be in English. I can read a little German, but a whole book would be hard. I already have the Prien & Rodeike book and the Radinger & Otto book.

Thanks for the help...

I've actually got that one and the other Osprey book on 109 aces of the Western Front. Although I enjoyed them, they really have no performance information. Thanks anyway though...

What seems wierd to me is that among the many books I have there's tons of charts and info on the FW190 family performance, but little on the ME109. Conversely there's tons of pilot accounts/books on the ME109, but not much on the FW190. I almost wish I'd saved the old manual from SWOTL.
