fifth release in the Dutch Profile series is "Fokker D.XXI/D.21 -
Operations of the LVA/ML Fokker D.XXI". This book covers the Fokker
D.XXI in Dutch service.
The Luftwaffe lost almost 400 aircraft in their campaign to conquer the
Netherlands, partly due to the creditable performance of the Fokker
The 60 pages provides detailed historical text presented in both
Dutch and English, lots of great reference photos, five colour four view
illustrations plus four side profiles, and drawings.
As the title implies, the narrative focuses primarily on operational
order of battle from the beginning of hostilities until the destruction
by the Dutch of nine D.XXIs on 14 May, 1940.
The photos and profiles are excellent.
This book also provides reliable information on the camouflage and
markings of RNAF Fokker D.XXIs. One revelation, to me at least, is the
palest of the three upper surface colours, Camouflagebeige. This
has traditionally been depicted as a sand yellow, but it appears to be a
much more neutral shade, almost grey.
Fokker fans will find plenty to keep them entertained between the
covers of this new book.
