It was known as the Jagdverbände, the fighter arm of the Luftwaffe, and by June 1940 it boasted some of the world’s greatest fighter pilots. With tactics honed to perfection, these battle-seasoned veterans dominated the skies of Europe.

But as the war progressed, the Luftwaffe fighter pilots faced another battle, the increasingly desperate war of attrition as the Allied air forces slowly, but inevitably, ground the German war machine into defeat. By early 1945 Allied air supremacy was overwhelming.
