In the Skies of France, a Chronicle of JG 2 "Richthofen": Volume 1: 1934-1940

The book is written by Erik Mombeeck and Jean-Louise Roba with Chris Goss and has 316 pages. The book covers the history of JG 2 from 1940 until the end of 1940 and includes the units operation in the battle of France and Britain on a day-by-day basis. What I likes is that it tries to verify when possible the units it fought against and made claims/suffered losses to. It also includes many personal recounts. The book is ended with appendix with losses and an index. Recommended!

Rating 4/5
