JG2 and JG4 in English are available now

Thanks to Erik, I have the unique chance to get the two books from the printer in China directly . Since I am the very first customer have received the books, I am glad to post my feeling here. The first impression of the books is very good, gives me the same feeling when I got Eagle Edtions' JG300. The books are well produced by using semi-gloss paper and full of text and photos. Most photos are "new" to me and well reproduced. Text are basicaly day by day account but heavily incorporated with veterans's war time report and vivid recollection like Erik has done in his JG1, not the boring war diary style just giving you the impression that everyday is the same day. I have no time to read much but after thumbing through the books, I can recommend the books to all TOCH members with no reserve.

Congratulations to Erik, Jean-Louis and Neil. I wish to see the coming of the following volumes soon.

Luke

Re: JG2 and JG4 in English are available now

Hello,

unfortunately, we could not avoid the usual delays for technical reasons. Nevertheless, the books should be in the USA within 10 days and in UK within 2 week. So, the first deliveries can be expected for the first half of April. Several members of TOCH and Lemb who reserved their copies will be the first served.
Luke, thanks for the nice words. Don't forget to mention Chris Goss too who participated to the first volume of the JG 2 chronicle.
I hope that your very positive impression will be shared by many enthusiasts.



Regards



Erik

Re: JG2 and JG4 in English are available now

my copies arrived yesterday - delivered in person by Erik Mombeeck himself - needless to say I was very impressed !
The books are superbly produced. The photographic content of the JG 2 volume in particular will have even the hardened enthusiast drooling - with many rescued from the files of the ECPA-D where they would otherwise languish (each individual ECPA-D photo costs a considerable sum to reproduce last time I enquired!). Please support Erik in this venture. Further volumes are in preparation, but sales have to follow in order to recoup the considerable expenses incurred. Happy reading!

I purchased these books mainly for the one on JG4 but have found the JG2 book to be very good. I a wait the next installment of both. If you haven't got them yet they are worth it.

Re: JG2 and JG4 in English are available now

Hi Erik,

I'd like to order the JG 2 book. Could you just clarify it will be posted from the U.S.A and the price for mailing quoted is for airmail and not surface post.

Congratulations and many thanks,

David.

Hi David,

thanks for your interest. in fact, there is a batch in the UK and another one in the USA. So, your copy would be sent from Great-Britain.

Please send me a p.m. or an e-mail (easy foundable on www.luftwaffe.be).

Best regards

Erik

Re: JG2 and JG4 in English are available now

Hi Erik,

I received my copy of the English version of JG 2 this morning. Although i have not been able to read it from cover to cover the quality of the book, photographs and profiles is very good. Well worth the wait!

I recommend it to anyone interested either in this Geschwader or period of the airwar.

Well done Erik and thanks for getting it to me so quickly.

All the very best,

David.
