Riassunto: The Wilde Sau Geschwader JG 300 played a key role in the aerial defense of the Reich during the last two years of WWII but has never before been the subject of a serious and detailed study. This work thus fills a major void in the history of the war in the air. This chronicle has been assembled with the participation of more than 130 veterans and their families, traced and interviewed in the course of more than twenty years research. It sheds new light on flying operations and aerial combat as experienced by German fighter pilots in the battles that took place over Germany. Interspersed with numerous vivid personal accounts, it is a work that has a uniquely human and personal dimension. The authors have undertaken an in-depth comparative study of German, British and American primary sources and archival records, with the chief aim of minimizing errors and inaccuracies and ruling out dubious information. Far from seeking to glorify German or Allied aviators, they have reconstructed as accurately as possible the fates of the actors in this immense human drama and pay them due tribute. This history of JG 300 also deals with those aspects of the air war often neglected in the specialist literature such as the daily routines of the ground personnel and the navigation methods practiced by single seat fighters. Included are comprehensive loss and victory listings, and more than 800 photographs in the two volumes collected from private sources. Twenty six color profiles and paintings by Thomas A. Tullis and Richard Goyat are featured in Volume 1 with thirty color profiles in Volume
About the Author: Jean-Yves Lorant was born in 1957 and has been passionate about airplanes and aviation historical research since his early teens. He began a career in aeronautical journalism in 1977 as a staff writer of one of France's leading aviation magazines Le Fana de l'Aviation, earning a private pilot's license during that same year. In 1980 he was the archivist at the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace at Le Bourget, Paris, before being appointed historian in 1996 at the Service Historique de l'Armée de l'Air (French Air Force Historical Branch) based at Vincennes. He is a frequent contributor to book projects and articles worldwide and is an acknowledged authority on the Luftwaffe and the French Air Force. A fluent German linguist, his most notable work, with Jean-Bernard Frappé, is the book Le Focke-Wulf 190 (Docavia/Éditions Larivière, 1981). A talented illustrator and assiduous researcher, Richard Goyat was born in 1957 and has a degree in law. His passion for aviation developed through modeling and art, where his goal to achieve authentic renditions both in plastic and on canvas led him into the field of archival research. He produced the color illustrations for the book Le Focke-Wulf 190 (Docavia/Éditions Larivière, 1981) and also illustrated the two volumes of Planes of the Luftwaffe Fighter Aces (Kookaburra, 1985).
