Jagdfliegerverbände Teil 13/V - Einsatz in der Reichsverteidigung und im Westen

The latest Jagdfliegerverbände volume has arrived. Teil 13/V comprises 484 pages and some 212 photos and covers JGs 7, 11, 26, 27, 53 and 54 as well as JGr. 10. The 7-page Appendix in this volume features JG 2 during 1942/1943 with many images new to me. The five volumes so far published in Teil 13 covering 1944 - Defence of the Reich and deployment in the West - amount to some 2,500 pages of text and 1,000 + great photos! From Jochen Prien;

 "... JFV Vol. 13/VI is also finished and will go to the printer before the end of the month. It will have appr. 300 pages and 150 + photos, covering JGs 76, 77, 300, 301, 302 as well as the parts of JG 5 fighting against the western allies from Norway. The miscellaneous units - Ergänzungs- and training units etc. - will be dealt with in an extra volume after the main series has been completed. Next will be Vol. 14, service in the MTO in 1944, which is almost finished. As of now it will be a single volume comprising some 500 pages and 300 + photos. The team has found a very important and effective addition - beginning with Vol. 13/V Ulf Balke will be an official member of the JFV team. He has accompanied the series from the very beginning and his input has been essential in many ways so far. We are very happy to have Ulf on board..."
