Jagdgeschwader 301/302 Wilde Sau: In Defense of the Reich with the Bf 109, Fw 190 and Ta 152 Summary

Jagdgeschwader 301/302 Wilde Sau: In Defense of the Reich with the Bf 109, Fw 190 and Ta 152 by Willi Reschke

Jagdgeschwader 301 and 302 were established in 1943. Their mission was to intercept enemy bombers at night flying fast single-engined fighters. But they also had to engage Allied bombers by day. The pilots of these new fighter wings were a mix of former bomber pilots and trained fighter pilots - a unique composition for the Luftwaffe. Night missions required good instrument training, like that given to bomber pilots. The fighter pilots were more familiar with the available aircraft and combat tactics. A former fighter pilot himself, Willi Reschke describes the difficulties of crossing over from day to night fighting and vice-versa. He describes the difficult missions flown by JG 301/JG 302 and the fates of their pilots, providing the first chronicle of the Wilde Sau Geschwader.
