I have the TA 152 book by him. It is a nice book with some very good and new pictures. I use it as reference.

Warplanes of the Third Reich is antiquated and although it was a great pioneering work back in the late 60-iesm, it should be read with care today.

The Fw 190A deals exclusively with early marks of Fw 190s, and covers the prototypes and pre-production aircraft in great detail.

It cannot be compared to AHT, which is a different type of book.

Its similar to the Ta 152 and Fw 190 Long Nose books.

With the exeption of Long Nose, all these books have originally been printed by Aviatic Verlag and are very similar in style. I dit not regret buying any, although the Schiffer translations are more expensive.

If you can take a peek before buying I'd do that.
