Kagero | Guide to German Night Fighters in World War II
Reviewed by Kevin Williams
Author: Eduardo Manuel Gil Martínez
Publishing Date: 2022
ISBN: 978-83-66673-68-7 (Softcover)
This volume from Kagero is entirely devoted to nocturnal fighters of the Luftwaffe in WWII. Coverage is broad, as one might expect, featuring (to one degree or another) the Me 262, Bf 109, Fw 190, Ju 88, He 219, Ta 154, Ar 234, etc.
The artwork that is provided, is confined to a few color profiles, very unusual for a Kagero volume, as they're generally loaded with profiles.
Obviously, kits are available in our scale, of several of the types herein provided, so building a representative one, as seen in this book, should prove very doable.
As is clearly evident, the photos are generally quite acceptable.
All in all, for such a monumental undertaking, this volume should provide lots to keep the mind busy. For most Luftwaffe night fighter fans, this book is just bound to please.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d rate this book as a solid 10, no question about it. Topping out at 140 pages, it is highly recommended.
My review copy compliments of Casemate Publishers. Thanks a ton to Casemate, it's a very interesting piece of reference work, and one that will surely fill the bill for any aviation enthusiast/modeler that has a passion for German WWII night fighters.
