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.

    LUGA JG 5


    Authors: Erik Mombeeck, Maciej Góralczyk

    This new volume is devoted to JG 5 ‘Fighters of the Midnight Sun’. Nothing predestined young German fighter pilots to fly and fight among the grandiose landscapes of Norway, Finland or Lapland with their hostile climates. Many of them would find their last resting places in the storm-tossed icy waters of the Arctic Sea or the snow-covered plains of the tundra. Who even now knows that the defeat of the Wehrmacht was precipitated by the failure to conquer Europe’s northern-most small territory?


    This latest Luftwaffe Gallery ‘special issue’ tells the story of this fighter Geschwader and its numerous aces on 96 pages, filled with rare and newly translated first person accounts, over 240 photos (many previously unpublished) and 32 specially commissioned artworks that had been created by Janusz Światłoń.

    JG 54 was perhaps the most fascinating fighter Geschwader of the Luftwaffe, not least for modellers. This is in large measure due to the variety of non-standard colour schemes worn by the unit’s Bf 109 and Fw 190 fighters as well as the diversity of its emblems and insignia displayed both early and late in the war.


    On 96 pages of this latest Luftwaffe Gallery ‘special issue’ we highlight the story of this fighter Geschwader through rare and newly translated first person accounts, 207 photos of which many are published for the first time, and 32 specially commissioned profiles that had been created by Thierry Dekker.

    LUGA JG 77

    Through newly translated personal accounts, over 230 photos and 31 colour profiles, we tell the story of this unit on 96 pages of this ‘special issue’ of Luftwaffe Gallery.
