Twenty four Luftwaffe fighter legends, men whose day-fighter and night-fighter activities covered the entire spectrum of the Luftwaffe’s combat fighter warfare – from the Battle of Britain to the Balkans, from the Russian Front to North Africa, from Italy to the final defense of the Reich.

“Imagine a set of illustrated profiles, individually written and personally signed by the great Fighter Aces of WWI – immortal personalities like von Richthofen , Albert Ball, Eddie Rickenbacker and other legends that have passed into history. We can only imagine what such a collection would be worth today – what then will the value of this historic Luftwaffe portfolio achieve in years to come?”
