ABOUT THIS PRODUCT


Of all the fronts fought on by the Jagdflieger during World War 2, the
Russian, or Eastern, was easily the most lucrative in terms of targets for
the experten. Marry an abundance of targets with the Luftwaffe's best
piston-engined fighter of the war - Focke-Wulf's Fw 190 'Butcher Bird' - and
it quickly becomes apparent why so many Jagdflieger achieved kills that
passed the 100 victories mark. Flying in variable weather on a battlefront
that was constantly changing, the Fw 190 pilots fought virtually to
extinction in both the pure fighter and the crucial Schlacht ground attack
roles. Aircraft of the Aces 6 and 37 are also available in a single volume
as 'German Aces of the Russian Front'.


BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE


Arguably the finest profile artist in the business, John Weal's love of
German aircraft makes his work a treat for students of the subject. He has
written several Aces volumes, and two books on the JU 87 in the companion
series Combat Aircraft.
