Featured aircraft in many rare, unpublished photos, crash sites and various other scenes both during and post WWII. Each book measures 8.5″ X 11″ and contains 36 pages of Black and White photos, some in color, including full color profiles by Thomas A. Tullis of some of the featured images.

New Erich Hartmann Bf 109 G-6 recently discovered!
This colorful aircraft was flown by Hartmann in Rumania when he achieved his 250th victory with 9./JG 52, 4 June 1944.

“Yellow 1” 9./JG 52 Erich Hartmann is featured on the cover of this edition as the ninth color profile.

Of special interest is the small Red number ‘2’ inside the “Yellow 1” which is believed to be indicative of his back-up machine. The profile and decals were produced based on stills taken from the original period film; however, permission has not been granted to publish the images.
