Am Himmel Frankreichs, Die Geschichte des JG 2 RICHTHOFEN, Bd. 6: 1944.
The sixth volume reports in detail on the history of “Richthofen” from January 1, 1944 until its final withdrawal from France at the end of August. This period was marked by many murderous dogfights during the preparation and implementation of the landing in Normandy. Due to the large imbalance of the armed forces, the persistence of the German air force pilots did not allow to defend the occupied sky over France. The losses of both the Allies and the German Air Force were dramatic. For example, within two months the JG 2 lost two commodores and two commanders, four of whom had reported almost 400 victories. The chapter concerning the fighting of JG 2 on the invasion front shows that «Richthofen» was particularly active there from June 6, 1944.
With 175 pictures.
