This one is the same words and images as the bookazine but it has been completely redesigned and will be printed in a large 200+ page hardback format. In the 132-page bookazine, some of the original images were 7000 x 5000 pixels or larger but ended up being used the size of a postage stamp due to lack of space. The font size on the last chapter was reduced to squeeze more in and many of the images were run over the gutter, rendering them more difficult to see properly. Some of the images were given a strange blue tint for some reason. The cover art was occluded by 'tasters' and roundels. Even the title was a compromise because it was felt that supermarket shoppers wouldn't understand what F.155T/O.R. 329 meant. This has been my opportunity to do justice to the content.
None of the others is an entirely straight reprint. Spitfires Over Berlin has been updated, while Secret Projects of the Luftwaffe: Jet Fighters and Secret Projects of the Luftwaffe: Bombers will include content from across my Luftwaffe: Secret series, plus some previously unpublished images, in order to tell the full story of jet fighter and bomber development, respectively, in Nazi Germany.
