• Am Himmel Frankreichs. Die Geschichte des JG 2, Bd. 1: 1934-1940

    This book is the GERMAN completed and edited chronicle of the famous Jagdgeschwader 2 Richthofen, the fighter wing named after the legendary WW1 aviator Freiherr Manfred von Richthofen, also called the Red Baron. It is the first time that a so detailed chronicle of this so famous unit appears in German. Compared to the previous English version In the Skies of France volume 1, this book contains dozens of new and fantastic pictures published for the first time, as well as new accounts of members of JG 2: the authors were now supported by the Traditionsgemeinschaft JG 71 Richthofen which gave them full access to their archives. This volume has been so extended that it could not contain any more the chapter dedicated to the Battle of Britain. This will be the nucleus of the subsequent volume. Presented in a day-by-day structure, this chronicle is documented and illustrated with around 350 excellent contemporary photographs with detailed captions. Loss-lists, as well as an index of proper names are included while the known victories are included in the text-self in form of small and well readable tables.
