La Wekusta 2 au combat 1940-1944. Brest, Nantes, Mont-de-Marsan, Bordeaux
The Wekusta 2 was a flying unit of the Luftwaffe used for weather reconnaissance, which historians have hitherto explored only marginally.
The history of Wekusta2, however, deserves more consideration. Few were, indeed, the Luftwaffe units that, during the Occupation, had permanently been based in France: the Wekusta 2, whose aircrafts took off daily from Lanvéoc Brest, Nantes-Chateau Bougon Mont de Marsan and Bordeaux-Merignac, is one of those.
Pierre Babin has therefore spent the last years working towards reconstructing the history the Wekusta 2. He explored the few available records, travelled to Germany and other Commonwealth countries to interview and collect the precious stories of veterans who served in the unit, and consulting the documents preserved by the airmen's families.
With this book - illustrated throughout with never-before-published photographs - Pierre Babin offers a unique and thorough account of the Wekusta 2.
With 239 b/w pictures (many of them small and many show persons), 21 color pictures of today, 12 maps, 3 colored unit emblems as well as 13 color profiles.
