Opis produktu:

The Easter Bunnies was the nickname Staffelkapitan Liebe-Piderit gave to the five young men who joined the 3rd Squadron of the Fernaufklarungsgruppe 123 in Hanau am Main at the end of March 1940. Tragically, four of the five Easter Bunnies did not survive

The name comes from a group of men who joined the unit in March 1940. Roman Gastager, whose memories make up the majority of this book was the only survivor of the 'Easter Bunnies.' He was in the German Army throughout World War II. He was call up just before the invasion of Poland and was still in the service when the war ended in 1945.

In between were recon flights over England and long, long patrols out over the Atlantic. Here they were operating at the extreme limits of the machines. Overloaded with fuel, a long way from home, contact with an enemy fighter or just a problem with an engine and the flight was in serious trouble. It was dangerous enough for both sides that when they met out over the water, often they just wagged their wings at each other and went home.

This is a story that waited a long time to be told, and it is quite educational as well as interesting reading.

A very personal account by an old vet with an excellent memory. He does embellish some of the events here and there, but don't we all do this is remembering the past? The unpublished photos are visual descriptions of some of the events he remembers so well. At one time the author flew with the Ju 88H long fuselage, long range version of which only a handful were made. A very worthy addition to any Luftwaffe book collection.
