This is Combat Aircraft 129 from Osprey, taking a look at the fighting aircraft of WWII. The Dornier Do 17 was a strange-looking aeroplane, being very long and tapering off towards the back end. The chapters cover the design and development and then the deployment into Poland, the Battle of France, the Battle of Britain, its use in the Blitz and finally, a last hurrah on the Eastern Front. The typeface is very small, packing a lot in, but still leaving room for a series of colour illustrations in the middle. So, worthy, if not particularly engaging.
