It was subordinated to Luftflotte 5, and located at Forus, near Stavanger. Other units of JG 5 were assigned to operations in support of the invasion of the Soviet Union in the north and were under the command of Fliegerfuehrer Nord Ost. By 1943 Jafu Norwegen had three squadrons (Staffel) of JG 5 under control, based at Trondheim, Gossen, Lade, Stavanger and Herdla. In 1944 had acquired a night fighter unit, based at Lista.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Wings for this Man is a propaganda film produced in 1945 by the U.S. Army Air Forces First Motion Picture Unit about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first unit of African-American pilots in the US military. The film begins with dramatic footage of aerial combat over Italy, showing an outnumbered American squadron successfully dogfighting a Luftwaffe formation. When the pilots land they step out and are revealed to be black, the narrator emphasises this when he stops to let the pilots speak highlighting their thick dialect. The picture then tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, starting with the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama and the founding of the airstrip near it. The narrator notes that the airmen had to overcome exceeding odds to get the unit created and notes that "there was misunderstanding, distrust and prejudice that had to be cleared away" before the unit could form. A rather standard training/combat/casualty sequence then follows, culminating in the third anniversary celebration of the unit followed by a parade.

The Hermann Goring Division
15,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Each of Germany's World War II armed services could claim one unit which earned a unique combat reputation, and which consequently was enlarged and developed far beyond the size originally planned. Hermann Goring, commander-in-chief of the air force, was determined that his Luftwaffe should share the glory of Germany's land conquests, and gave his name to a regimental combat group of infantry and Flak artillery. This elite unit was steadily enlarged into a brigade, then an armoured division, and finally into a two-division corps, fighting with distinction in Tunisia, Sicily, Italy, and on the Russian Front. This concise history is illustrated with rare personal photographs and eight colour plates, detailing the very varied uniforms and special insignia of this crack formation.
