Item No. SP-010
German Combat Pilots of WWII
Stackpole publishing has rereleased Fedorowicz's best selling (and now out of print) "Luftwaffe Aces!" These reprints are soft cover and though the content is the same, some items may have been omitted for publishing reasons. Despite the minor changes, these volumes are still amongst the most comprehensive works ever published on the various aspects of the German War Machine. We are happy to see them available again at a much lower price, making them affordable for all historians and enthusiasts!
This exciting book tells the combat biographies of seven Luftwaffe aces: three day-fighter pilots, one night-fighter pilot, one close-support pilot, and two bomber pilots. This mix of well-known and less famous pilots includes Heinz B„r, who had 221 victories and was an ME 262 ace; Otto Kittel, the fourth-highest Luftwaffe ace with 267 kills; Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer, a leading night-fighter ace with 121 kills; Wilhelm Batz, whose two-year combat career ended with 237 kills in the elite JG 52; Otto Weiss, a close-support pilot in the Hs 123 and Hs 129; Joachim Helbig, who flew the Ju 88 bomber over Malta; and Ludwig Havighorst, who served first with the infantry and then the Luftwaffe, where he flew fifty bombing missions over Stalingrad
Size: 6 x 9", Soft cover, 368 pages, 50 excellent wartime b/w photographs.
