Jagdfliegerverbände 11/I now out in October

Gentlemen,

after the usual and seemingly inevitable problems and delays I have now been informed by struve druck that Volume 11/I of our JFV-series will finally be out on October 6th, 2010.

Volume 11 will deal with operations of the fighter units in the Mediterrannean ToW in 1943, Part 1 covering the general informations on the events that took place there in 1943 including some maps, the types of fighter a/c introduced there in 1943 by the Luftwaffe etc.

The units dealt with are II./JG 2, IV./JG 3, I./JG 4, I./JG 5, Stab, II., III. and IV./JG 27, II./JG 51, Stab and I./JG 53.

Volume 11/I will have 483 pages with some 380 photos plus the usual line drawings, tables etc.

Volume 11/II will complete this chapter covering II. and III./JG 53, Stab, I. II. and III./JG 77 and the operations over Rumania with I./JG 4, I./JG 5 and III./JG 77 including 10./JG 301. This part is almost ready to go to the printer and is scheduled to be there by the end of this year / early 2011.

I have to apologize for the delay and hope that the results will compensate for the waiting.

Regards

Jochen Prien

Great news. I will say that while I am always impatient for the next volume in the series to appear, in the end it's always worth the wait. To paraphrase what a friend of mine always says, 'we've waited 60+ years for this type of documentation, what's a few more days.' Don't worry about us, we'll live. It's more important to get it right.

It is and unbelievable achievement that books of this caliber have been published at this high rate in the first place. Why should anyone apologize for a delay measured in months, where many publications have delays of years if not decades!!

Congratulations is in place!

Happy times for all of us.

I second Ruy's comment. The series of books is an incredible souce of information, making it invaluable for any aviaiton researcher even passingly interested in the European air war.

Congratulations, gentlemen!
