Book Wir Kämpften auf dem Balkan: VIII. Fliegerkorps, We are Fighting in the Balkans: 8th Flying Corps (Item LUFT 10-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is possibly the rarest WWII German book that we have ever purchased in that it was printed for distribution only to the officers of the 8th Flying Command and under no conditions was it for sale. Why such a beautiful book was not for public consumption, we don’t know, but in any case, it is an excellent work with text and hundreds of fine photographic entries; many in full Agfa color, which was way ahead of its time. All sorts of aircraft are shown with their heroic pilots and crews, personalities of the Luftwaffe are featured, allies, ceremonies, charts, paratroops, battle scenes, ground troops, etc. The pages are not numbered, but the book is nearly an inch thick so we are probably talking about more than 150 pages, at least. The book measures 12 x 8 ½ inches and we think it to be the great hornbook of the German Air Force in WWII.

PRICE: $450.00

Book Der Rote Kampfflieger, The Red War Flyer (Item LUFT 10-6; WWI 6-17; GOR 6-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is a book chronicling the life, adventures, and death of the great air hero, Manfred von Richthofen, known to the English-speaking world as the “Red Baron” and to the Germans as the “Red War Flyer.” The book comprises 262 pages with great pictures and a foreword by Hermann Göring, who, in 1933, when this book was published, was Reichsminister of the German Third Reich. There are about 70 pictures ranging from pictures of Manfred and fellow pilots, to air battles, wrecks, enemy aircraft, victories, etc. There is a moving picture of his funeral with Australian soldiers firing a salute in honor of a fallen adversary, who was greatly respected. The book is in very nice condition and certainly a valued addition to any good archival collection.

PRICE: Sold

Giant Luftwaffe Print and Chart “Battle of Britain” (Item LUFT 10-7; PICS 1-1)

DESCRIPTION: Here is the absolute greatest colorful picture that would spice up any great German Air Force-oriented collection. This, as far as we know, is an out-of-print chart. This was bought unframed, but we thought so much of it we decided to have it framed (it deserved it!) This is the most dramatic-looking presentation we have ever seen depicting this heroic struggle in the skies of war-torn Europe. Amazingly here surrounding the great picture of the Luftwaffe pilot and crew are all of the squadron insignia of the fighter and bomber units. This is about as dramatic as it gets. We also have for those interested a matching one for the RAF, but not framed (inquire). The colors are fantastic. This is huge 37 x 27 inches in its frame. The framing alone was over $100 and bear in mind that this will have to be specially packaged for shipping, but well worth it! Absolutely beautiful and probably not available elsewhere, at least to our knowledge.

PRICE: $200.00 plus shipping and handling

Oil Painting of Me-109 in Africa (Item LUFT 10-8; PICS 2-2)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a magnificent oil painting of the Messerschmidt 109 of Luftwaffe ace of aces, Captain Hans-Joachim Marseille of the LG2, JG52, and JG27. He had a kill score of 167 and won the Knight’s Cross with oak leaves, swords, and diamonds. He was only 27 years old when killed in a freak aerial accident. The painting is by the very famous combat artist Mr. Ray Waddy, who has illustrated aircraft for numerous fine WWII magazines. The detailing is superb and unequaled in the world of military art. This is a unique oil painting and has not been repeated. When you buy it you have the only rendition ever to be sold. This is a large canvas measuring 24 x 30 inches and is a stunning depiction of Marseille’s favorite partner in the saga of the war skies (the Me-109).

PRICE: $650.00; original artwork

Painting by an ex-Luftwaffe Artist (Item LUFT 10-10; ART 7-7)

DESCRIPTION:On the back of the painting is a tag that reads:
Born June 3, 1925 in Leipzig
Studied art in Stacksen G.
He then attended the Art Academy in Leipzig
Studied under Prof. E Greuner and Karl Mierach
In 1942, Henze joined the German Luftwaffe and served as a pilot in the Luftwaffe. He was captured by the Americans and interned at Bad Reichenhall in Bavaria until 1945 when he was released. From 1945 to 1950, Henze resumed his art studies in Munich under Profs. Hans Goett and A. Schinnerer. To date, Henze has had 12 semesters of art study and is today working for an art dealer in addition to painting.
Another tag that is on the back reads: Registry #27651
Frame No. R Zoo
Order No. s-1
Title - Landscape
Artist Henze
The very pleasant painting in oil measures in the frame 35 x 31 inches and the frame is about 2 ½ inches wide. We do not know when the work was accomplished, but it is good! It is not a war relic, it’s true, but it does show the German flair for beautiful meaningful art and the fact that this man was one of Germany’s Heldenfliegers, in our mind, quite relevant to its historical value.

Book Kreta—Sieg der Kühnsten, Crete—Victory of the Kühnsten (Item LUFT 10-11; WEHR 18-1)

DESCRIPTION:This incredible book of the Second World War dramatizes the heroic battle of the paratroopers and contains a foreword by the Reichsmarschals and Luftwaffe General Kurt Student. This book is dramatic to the core! with huge pictures throughout of the action in the invasion of Greece at Crete. For action front-line photography this book was never matched by German or even the books of the enemy. This is probably the most sought-after book of the wartime volumes. This was a complete victory, but at the cost of many young noble lives. It was also the first massive and successful airborne assault in the wartime history of the world. The tough Fallshirmajagers and Gebirgsjagers (paratroopers and mountain troopers) are wonderfully depicted in action, at rest, at maneuvers, and with prisoners. Knight’s Cross winners, generals, Italian allies, aircraft, and weaponry of all types are shown in hundreds of pages and hundreds of pictures. The cover is done up with the camouflage colors of the German Paratroop command. In the back page the former owner was given a color picture by Wolf Willrich depicting Colonel Bräver, a winner of the Knight’s Cross. The book measures 9 x 12 inches. The cover is a bit distressed with the spine a little tattered as can be seen in our pictures, but the pages are intact and in good shape. The book is rated as 'archival excellent.'

Luftwaffe Officer’s Sword from Flackartillerieschule (Item LUFT 10-12)

DESCRIPTION:Here is an aluminum-fitted air-force-officer’s sword. This has unfortunately been abused by a child of the consigner over the years and suffers a little in condition. It is still an original piece and quite rare because it is nicely unit marked from the Flakartillerieschule 5 (Antiaircraft Artillery School 5). This was the Luftwaffe school situated in Baden near Vienna Horch und Leuchtdienst. It was disbanded April 21, 1945. German antiaircraft accounted for 19 percent of allied aircraft destroyed in combat. Unfortunately, it is our opinion that resources devoted to German AA could have been better used building other weapons, especially fighter aircraft. Nonetheless, Germany’s air-defense systems at the outset of the war were the best in the world. General Henry Arnold observed, “We never conquered the German flak artillery.” In the end it sadly did not matter because the flak arm could not change the fate of the Reich or save German cities and industry from destruction. The sword has the original gold wash in the Sonnenrad swastika, but the scabbard has quite a few gouges in it although still presentable looking. The grip has the slight scuffing usually encountered (not bad). The blade has no company marks because it is issue with the issue number stamped on the lip of the scabbard top fitting (“No. 603”) Three fourths down the blade you can perceive nicks at the edges that were received when the little treasure of a kid was playing “Conan the Barbarian” in the yard trying to cut down the neighbor’s fence. Again, thank goodness this does not really detract that much and these can be worked out effectively. In general, the sword is presentable and rather rare with the unit marking. It measures 35 inches long in the scabbard. It is a very good value.

Luftwaffen Flugzeugführerabz (Air Force Pilot Observer’s Badge) (Cased) (Item LUFT 10-14)

DESCRIPTION:Here is one of the greatest of the WWII badges; or the collectors seem to think so. It certainly is a pretty one. It was the combination qualification badge for an airman who had qualified both as a pilot and observer. This badge was introduced on March 26, 1936, to replace the older aircrew badge (L.001). It took the same format as the former badge, but the eagle was bright silver and the wreath was gilt. This badge was made in aluminum and presented in a blue leatherette box with blue silk lining. The top of the box has the name of the award stenciled in blocked gold letters. The maker clearly stamped on the back of the badge is ‘C.E. Juncker Berlin S.W.’ The eagle has the proper rivets that pinion it to the wreath. It’s in A-1 condition. This is a nice one indeed and very rare.
