In The Skies of France- The History of JG 2 "Richthofen" In addition to a careful description of the facts relating to the history of this prestigious wing of the Luftwaffe, this book presents numerous testimonies of survivors or documents (such as letters, newspapers of war...) written by pilots missing in action. This book also shows that even if they flew planes bearing swastikas or black cross, their concerns differed little from those of their opponents. Opponents who respected each other, it was not rare, indeed, to take off at the end of the mission to try to locate the downed enemy to send relief. Bases of JG 2: Beaumont, Bernay, Brest, Cherbourg Octeville, Théville, Couvron, St. Quentin, Signy, Evreux, Cézanne, Calais, Oye, Monceau St Vaast, Saint Pol / Brias... and many others. We would like to thank especially five JG "Richthofen" veterans who have marked this Chronicle: Julius Meimberg and Erich Rudorffer, their help and the preface that they were kind enough to write; and Hennig Strumpell, Wolfgang Falck and Dr Siegfried Bethke, unfortunately all three died in the meantime, for their encouragement and their unfailing availability.
