Why is the Bugatti Model 100 included? Bugatti was a French company located in Alsace
 

Maiwand1880

Ettore Bugatti had very little to do in the design and development of the Bugatti - de Monge 100P. Count Pierre Louis de Monge de Franeau, who was Belgian, and his son Jean Bugatti (born in Germany), created the aircraft and its propulsion for Bugatti which was a French company, with seat in Molsheim, Bas-Rhin. If such dubious ethnicity or place-of-birth criteria were applied, then the whole history of aviation and astronautic would have to be rewritten: the Bugatti - de Monge 100P should feature in "Belgian Secret projects", and Appolo-Saturn would become a German-Belizean programme, because von Braun was German-born (hey! but his birthplace is now a Polish town!) and Maxime Faget was born (as an American admittedly) in Belize (then a British colony, however...). So on and so forth.

I have received message from Amazon.it that volume will be avaible on 10 december .
Interestingly, Amazon (U.S.) says 30 September (probably an exaggeration) while Amazon (U.K.) says 30 November.

Unfortunately, Crecy's own website now says 30 April 2020!
Ok , it's better late than nothing
