Created from elements of I./JG 77 and IV./JG 1 in January 1942, Jagdgeschwader 5 �Eismeer� is one of the lesser-known German fighter units of the Second World War. It nevertheless had an impressive operational history, as this book shows. The unit�s successes were equally great. The Geschwader�s ranks included a number of outstanding fighter pilots who marked JG 5 and accounted for a large percentage of its victories: names like Bartels, Brunner, Carganico, D_brich, D_rr, Ehrler, Linz, Mors, M�ller, Norz, Schuck and Wei_enberger will always be associated with JG 5. Produced on the initiative of the Eismeerj_ger Veterans Association, this account of operations by JG 5 is intended to further round out the history of the German fighter arm and provide the reader with a picture of the fighting in the far north.
