Luftwaffe Aces Biographies and Victory Claims Volume 1
Red Kite is delighted to publish of one of the most significant reference book sets of recent years, ‘Luftwaffe Aces’. The result of two lifetime’s research by acknowledged experts Johannes Mathews and John Foreman, this remarkable four-volume set, totalling over 1,500 pages, includes over 2500 Luftwaffe pilots and is the most exhaustive work on the subject ever published.
Each Luftwaffe fighter pilot who claimed five victories or more is featured along with his biographic details and a record of each and every known claim.
The authors have chosen to return as far as possible to primary sources, principally the listings on microfilms discovered at Bundesarchiv Militararchiv in Germany and various unit war diaries. No published works have been used as primary sources as many books have been based upon ‘recycled’ and inaccurate information.
