About this title

Synopsis:

An autobiography by Wolfgang Falck the Father of the Luftwaffe Night Fighters, each leather bound, limited edition copy is individually autographed by Wolfgang Falck. Limited to only 300 copies, each has a miniature of the Knight's Cross ribbon as a book mark.

Here, in his autobiography, Flack provides the reader with a fascinating behind the scenes personal view of life in the leadership of the German Luftwaffe, its successes, its operations and failures, the interrelationship of personalities involved and ultimately the end of WWII. Wolf brings the reader an upfront and personal view of his experiences in the last desperate days and on through his immediate post war survival. Over 250 photos, covering 200 pages, including full color profiles of Falck's aircraft, 8.5 X 11.

About the Author:

Wolfgang Falck found himself in the most unique position when German Luftwaffe high command decided to form a night fighter force. Because of his leadership capabilities and knowledge of military tactics plus the fact that he was a very capable fighter pilot, Falck was selected to create the Nachjagd. Known affectionately by his men as the Father of the Night Fighters, he continues to wear this mantel to this day.
