German Wings in Italian Skies: Imperial, Inter-War and Luftwaffe Military Aircraft in Italy 1911-1945
Luigino Caliaro
Candos are pleased to announce that their fantastic new book on German aircraft in Italian service from 1911-1945 ‘German Wings in Italian Skies’, authored by Italian aviation expert, photographer and avid photo-collector Luigino Caliaro, is now available to pre-order. Luigino will already be familiar to aviation fans having recently published highly acclaimed books in English on the Savoia-Marchetti S.79 Sparviero, and on Macchi Fighters, for Crecy Publishing.

‘German Wings in Italian Skies’ recounts the story of German aircraft in Italy, from the Etrich ‘Taube’ monoplane onwards, but the real core of the book focuses on the Luftwaffe types delivered to the Regia Aeronautica, and the ANR, such as the Ju-87, Bf 109, Bf 110, Do 217 night fighter, Fi 156 and Ju 88. The highly detailed text is accompanied by a superb selection of over 600 very rare images, most of which have never been seen or published before, and specially commissioned colour profiles by acclaimed digital artist Janusz Światłoń. There are fascinating appendices on such diverse topics as German gliders in Italian service, and the rarely-known story of the Italian pilots who went to Germany to train to fly the Me 163 Komet.

The publisher are hoping the book will be available to buy by early June. By placing your order now please understand that this is a pre-order which will be dispatched as soon as the books are back from the printer.
