My better half gave me this nice book, It's in Swedish, but I guess there's other editions. 
A really nice book with in depth descriptions of 10 iconic WW2 fighters. Hurricane, 109, Spit, P38, Zero, P40, FW190, P47, P51 & ME262.

 

 


Please have patience with my spelling/language. English is not my native tounge.

while both covers almost look like world of warplanes screenshots...
There is an art to flying, or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. ... Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, that presents the difficulties (Douglas Adams - Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)

Thats the same book as the original post ( jaktflyg = "hunting aircraft", common germanic/ scandinavian term for fighters

Then the full title is 

Fighters! 

Ten legendary planes from the second (other) world war

Just finished 'Six Weeks Of Blenheim Summer' by Alastair Panton. It's a relatively short memoir but really brings home what the RAF (specifically 53 Sqd) went through in the Battle of France. Well worth the £6-7 I paid on Amazon for it.
