“…illuminating background notes…Photos, artwork, tables and biographic sidebars support this solid study. And the late, great Teodire Liviu Morosanu's 37 beautiful color plates – profiles, plan views and insignia for MS 406s, MB.152s and D-520s – splendidly sated my modeling muse….MMP has forged a deservedly brilliant reputation with gems like this. Enthusiasts of WWII's Blitzkrieg Era will love Montpellier Fighter Squadron. I certainly did. Robustly recommended!”
