Understand. It is a chronicle of the early beginnings up to 1940

Many thanks, Bertrand

Les "Abbeville Boys" or - better - "The Abbeville Boys"
 
Hello,

this book is about to be available (15 November 2011). This is a 96 pages Special Album in the Series of Luftwaffe Gallery. Thus, I am not doing a day by day chronicle like with my JG 2, 4, 5 works. Hope that you will be, nevertheless, interested.
Erik

Here a short description:

In the Luftwaffe Gallery series, this expanded 'special' edition is devoted to JG 26, the famed "Abbeville Boys” or "Abbeville Kids” of RAF and USAAF legend. This superb new title provides an unparalleled view of air combat in the skies of Britain and France, from dog-fighting between Messerschmitts and Spitfires during the campaign in the West and the Battle of Britain, to fighter bomber missions over southern England, to the Allied invasion of Normandy and the desperate sorties flown by the unit's FW 190s against the huge USAAF bomber streams. Superb Artwork by Thierry Dekker, about 250 photographs and new personal accounts ...

It seems that Judy and Jerry

Yesterday Erik informed me that he's able to dispatch "Les Abbevile Boys" and JG 4/2, so European customers can now order themselves a Christmas gift :)

As no one did it, here's my short opinion on LuGa Special No.1. It's a very fine book with lots of good quality photos, of which some were new to me. This makes this publication a nice addition to Jagdfliegerverbände series and LiF magazines. I mention them here not coincidentally, because 'The Abbeville boys' sometimes supplements these books/magazines, including f.e. 9 photos of Bf109E-1 W.Nr.3413 'Black 5' of Lt. Hans Krug; 3 photos of Bf109E-4 W.Nr.1195 'White 7' of Lt. Josef Bürschgens, 4 photos of Bf109E-7/N W.Nr.4139 'White 11' of Lt. Theo Lindemann, 2 shots of Bf109F-2 W.Nr.7194 'Yellow 6' of Fw. Karl Willius and a full portside picture of Fw190A-3 'Yellow 5' of the same pilot (with the flags of nations against Willius had flown painted under the cockpit). Other highlights of the album are another Fw190 of Willius which beside the flags sports also a quite big clover under the windscreen, and two photos (I've never seen one of them in any book) of R4M-equipped Fw190D-9 'White 1' of 5./JG 26 (according to p.427 of 'Focke-Wulf Fw 190D camouflage & markings, Part II' it's W.Nr.210069). Even if there are some small errors in captions, mostly in regard to the aircraft subtypes, overally the book is worth its value and I strongly recommend it. From my own experience I suggest buying Erik's books directly from him as he offers shipping by French special book service, which is quite inexpensive.

Best regards,
Maciej
