A fully illustrated overview of Luftwaffe victory markings in World War II.

This book provides an overview of the victory markings painted on the fins and rudders of the planes of the German day fighter and night fighter aircraft between 1939 and 1945, and demonstrates how these were applied in reality through the profiles of nineteen pilots, including some of the most emblematic pilots of the Luftwaffe: Hans Troitzsch, Johannes Gentzen, Frank Liesendahl, Wilhelm Balthasar, Otto Bertram, Joachim Müncheberg, Karl-Heinz Koch, Kurt “Kuddel” Ubben, Felix-Maria Brandis, “Fiffi” Stahlschmidt, Franz-Josef Beerenbrock, Heinrich Setz, Walter “Gulle" Oesau, Max-Hellmuth Ostermann, Heinrich Bartels, "Fritz" Dinger, Martin Drewes, Egmont zur Lippe-Weissenfeld and Ludwig Meister.


"For any and all who seek out photos of the German WWII victory markings adorning their aircraft, this book is simply a 'must have'."

- Large Scale Planes

"...will be of great interest to modelers who want to put victory markings on a Luftwaffe fighter model..."

- AMPS Indianapolis

"...modelers seeking to put a finishing detail on their aircraft will find this book quite useful."

- Historical Miniatures Gaming Society

"An esoteric subject such as 'victory markings' has been turned into a book written around to be highly informative, biographical, and downright fascinating."


"...this is a great title not only for those who are fairly well steeped in the subject, but for tyros as well. Highly recommended."
