Just received my copy. Just as good as Volume 1 with the added bonus of various appendices showing extra photos, paperwork and listings.

Great news I've been waiting for this addition to be finished!

Thanks for the update.

I ordered mine from Christian Schmidt. Is this the last volume or is there supposed to be a third?

I believe it is the last volume. It finishes off the alpabetical listings for the biographies.

Re: Die Ritterkreuzträger der Kampfflieger, Band 2

hucks216 is correct this is the last volume for Kampfflieger. If not mistaken the next volumes(s) if realized would be the Aufklarungsflieger (recon).

Is anyone else aware of whether these are in the works. Recon flyers would likely be a single volume.

Regards

Jeremy

That would be wonderful if they can do the RK winners of the AUfklarungsflieger and the Transportflieger. Then all Luftwaffe pilots who won the RK would be complete.

Re: Die Ritterkreuzträger der Kampfflieger, Band 2

Despite the excellent 2 volumes, sales have not been very supportive for further volumes. Perhaps e-mails praising the 2 with hopes for others direct to the author/publisher may help:
