From spearheading the initial Blitzkrieg attacks on enemy forces in the Nazi European offensives to conspicuous success against overwhelming odds on the Eastern Front, JG54 remained one of the Luftwaffe's most potent fighter forces. In combat from Poland to Stalingrad, the Channel coast to Finland, JG54's pilots ended the war with a kill tally of almost 9,000 aircraft.
With full statistical appendices and many previously unpublished photographs reflecting the life and times of the 'Green Hearts,' Jerry Scutts traces the origins and composition of the unit before the war and assesses the importance of experience gained by individual pilots in the Spanish Civil War. Considering the impact made by the world's first modern warplane, the Bf109, and by the later FW190, he describes in detail the many actons in which the unit took part and examines how JG54 fared against the new generation of Allied fighters -- the Spitfire, Mustang and MiG3.
