Night Hunters of the Reich by Nicolas Trudgian features the Bf110G-4 of legendary Luftwaffe night fighter pilot Martin Drewes.
Bf110G-4 of 47-night victory pilot Oberleutnant Martin Drewes at dusk in March 1944, heading out to intercept in-bound British four-engined bombers over north west Germany. Equipped with the latest FuG220 and 218 radars, the experienced crew will lie in wait, carefully choose their prey, stalk and close for the kill. The deadly game of hide and seek is about to begin.
This print is signed by Knight’s Cross holder Oberst Wolfgang Falck.
One of the leading Luftwaffe night fighter pilots, Wolgang Falck spent 2 years as Kommodore of elite night fighter unit NJG1. He later joined Luftwaffe Reich where he was responsible for the day and night fighter defence of the Reich. In 1944 he was made Fighter Leader in the Balkans.
”Wolfgang Falck was not only one of the first who flew in 1939, but also was one of the greatest in terms of pioneering and innovations to the new art of night fighting. He was on of our best men” ....General Adolf Galland
