Bloody Biscay - The history of V Gruppe/Kampfgeschwader 40

Bloody Biscay - The history of V Gruppe/Kampfgeschwader 40
The story of the Luftwaffe's only long range maritime fighter unit - V Gruppe/Kampfgeschwader 40 (V/KG40) - and its battles against the Royal Air Force (RAF), the US Army Air Force (USAAF) and the US Navy (USN) in the skies above the Bay of Biscay. Using personal accounts from both German and Allied survivors from July 1942 onwards, Bloody Biscay relates the initial tribulations of the unit and its battles against overwhelming odds to its eventual annihilation over the Normandy beaches in June 1944.

Comprehensive appendices detail the unit's commanding officers, known aircrew, all of its 109 known 'kills' matched to Allied losses and the 88 combat losses of the unit with the details of who shot those aircraft down. The twenty-six aircraft lost in accidents and further aircraft interned in Spain are also listed. Containing nearly 200 photographs, the vast majority of German origin, Bloody Biscay will give the reader a graphic insight into V/KG40's aircraft, crews and 'kills' together with the Allied aircraft and crews pitted against them.
