Reviews - What do customers think about Defenders of the Reich Series: Volume One, 1939-1942?

Colorful Look at a Luftwaffe Elite!  Nov 11, 2005
The creation and early combat history of Jagdgeschwader 1, one of the Luftwaffe's elite units, is told in this, the first of a three-volume set on the Oesau wing. Springing from the prewar JG 132, JG 1 enjoyed a protracted development, not fielding four groups until early 1942. In the meantime its initial units took part in the Battle of Heligoland Bight, the Polish campaign, the attack on France and the invasion of Russia. The wing subsequently became one of the Luftwaffe's premier fighter defense mainstays, flying Me 109s and FW 190s against RAF and USAAF air attacks from England.

The early years of JG 1's history are concisely told in this wonderfully-illustrated book from Classic Publications. The book features hundreds of photos of Oesau pilots and their aircraft, many of them previously unpublished, along with dozens of nicely done color profiles by Tom Tullis and Eddie Creek.

If you're interested in Luftwaffe fighter units, this book is for you. Highly recommended.
