Start's Luftwaffe im Focus is one of those periodicals that once you start reading it, you want more. Edition #30 arrived recently and like all the others I have read, is well worth the wait.

What makes LiF so special is the number of well chosen, clear images that have never been published before. Many of these come from private collections and family members of those who took the images. They are not your usual photos as they frequently show types that don't get a lot of coverage, but the research that goes into each story is exemplary.

A good example of that is the research that is with the largest article in this issue that covers the Kurierstaffel (trop) Africa, which provided a variety of aircraft types to provide transportation for a variety of in theater reasons, including carrying VIPs. There are also articles on presentation goblets, heavy fighters, a Ju-88 that ran afoul of flak, a 109 with much of its tail shot off and much more.

Like the other 29 editions, this one is worth picking up and adding to your library.
