Exciting Tales of JG 1's Last Battles!  Jan 27, 2006
The final, desperate combats fought by JG 1 are the subject matter of this, the final volume in Eric Mombeek's three-volume history.

As with the previous books, this volume relates JG 1's story using a combination of first-person narratives, dozens of rare wartime photos and two dozen color profiles by Tom Tullis. (Tullis' artwork of the wing's Bf 109s, FW 190s and He 162s, by the way, is a joy to behold).

During the final years of the war JG 1 fought on the Western and Eastern Fronts, logging a steady run of kills by wing stalwarts like Heinz Bar, Alfred Grislawski, Herbert Kaiser, Georg-Peter Eder and Hans Ehlers. In return it suffered increasingly severe losses including its fabled commander, Walter Oesau in May 1944. As with other Luftwaffe fighter wings, JG 1 soldiered on till the bitter end but the outcome was a foregone conclusion.

Luftwaffe enthusiasts will want to add all three volumes of this wonderful history to their collection. A first-rate job at a very affordable price!
