Alpine Thunder by Nicolas Trudgian


Alpine Thunder by Nicolas Trudgian features Me262 jet fighters of JV44.

Having just escaped from Munich with the advancing Americans only minutes away, Oberstleutnant Heinz Bar, last commander of JV44, leads his flight of Me262s to their mountain hideaway at Saltzburg, 29th April 1945. Later the same day Bar, flying this unique Me262A-1a.U5 equipped with six 30mm cannon, claimed a P47 Thunderbolt in a final act of defiance. Galland had hoped to battle on with JV44 but the unsuitable mountain airfields prevented the famous fighter wing from doing much to delay the inevitable. So the beautiful Alpine meadows became the final resting place for what was potentially the most formidable fighter unit of the war. In just a few days the jets were left abandoned. Their short, exhilarating war, consigned to history.

Alpine Thunder by Nicolas Trudgian is signed by three Knight's Cross holders who flew the Me262 in WW2:
Oberleutnant Walter Schuck
Oberst Hermann Buchner
Major Werner Roell.
