Opis produktu:

This book is the second of a series of four covering the Jagdwaffe (Luftwaffe fighter arm) in the Battle of Britain.
All four books are printed in a standard format featuring black and white and colour photographs;colour drawings of individual unit markings; veterans’ accounts of the Battle and an overview of the particular phase of the Battle.
This volume focuses predominantly on the Messerschmitt Bf109 E variants which where used extensively between August and September 1940. It features unit histories and profiles of some of the personalities of the time including Adolf Galland. Six of the 192 pages are dedicated to him alone!
I used this book as a reference for modelling aircraft of the period. For this purpose it is superb, providing both valuable information and inspiration. However, it would also be of great appeal to anyone with an interest in the Luftwaffe’s involvement in the air battles over Britain during 1940. It is far more than a book about aircraft markings and I cannot fail but to heartily recommend it.


Although the Jagdwaffe series is a detailed examination of Luftwaffe fighter camouflage and markings and pictorial the series also covers the history of the Jagdwaffe. This particular book looks at the German preparation and plan of campaign for the Battle of Britain and covers the opening phase of the battle from 1 July to 12 August 1940. What I particularly like is the separate boxed text of interviews of Luftwaffe fighter pilots giving a brief history of themselves and usually also describing an exciting fighter engagement. Like the previous books in the series this book includes many photographs and colour profiles of Messerschmitt 109s that would prove invaluable to the keen modeling enthusiast. This book explains how and why Messerschmitt 109 E camouflage and markings changed in this period to tone down the colours against the channel and english countryside. Also included in this book is a six page biography on Werner Molders. This is an excellent book and series and is highly recommended to those who have an interest in the Luftwaffe and specifically Volume Two to those who have an interest in the Battle of Britain.
