The Third Reich's last ditch efforts to combat the massed Allied bomber formations centred around the new jet-powered "wonder weapons" that were issued to the Jagdwaffe from mid-1944 onwards. Far in advance of anything the Allies had even in experimental phase, types such as the Me 262, He 162 and 163, and the Ar 234 could perform their combat sorties with relative impunity. Detailing both the planes and the pilots, this volume looks at the handful of pilots who amassed amazing scores in the last year of the war with these aircraft, flying with units like JG 7, JV 44 and NJG 6.
