FIESELER Fi-156 STORCH IN ITALIAN SERVICE
Among the many aircrafts used by Regia Aeronautica units during World War II, the Fieseler Storch proved to be extremely versatile and highly appreciated by the Italian crews. Although wide use was also made of the feared Stuka and the powerful Me 109s, the Fi 156’s contribution remains unique particularly for its demanding fight characteristics and for the high risk missions it had to undertake. This book is a tribute to the men that flew it to history.
