Ju52 losses
Tue Apr 23 11:28:20 2002
195.6.104.32

For losses in have in the French magazine 'Aero-Journal' number 3 a number of 59 Ju52s, 24 shot down and 35 crash/force-landed on Tunisian beaches.

I guess that most of the latter were ultimately lost for the Luftwaffe, as there was few time and means to recover them before the loss of Tunisia. Surely only the less damaged planes were flown back to Europe.

Same sources contain testimonies by Allied pilots and cite Italian Mc202 in the escort. Allied pilot confusion here or not ?

Stuka Losses in North Africa
Sun May 26 21:42:09 2002
195.92.168.173

Can anyone suggest books, or sources where I can access information concerning the exact dispositions and losses of the Stuka Geschwader ( St.G1,2 and 3) in the Desert campaign between February 1941 and May 1943. I would also be interested in any books available on the market that detail the histories of these particular Geschwader.

Unfortunately no such unit historys of these units exist (yet). "Fighters Over the Desert" and "Fighters Over Tunisia" are probably the best available. Of course there are the General Quartermaster loss reports. Two other books that may be of interest are those by pilots Helmut Mahlke (St.G. 1) and Werner Zirus (Schl.G. 2). Unfortunately I don't remember the title of either.

SG 2 Immelmann

198.26.120.13

For SG 2 there is Holger Nauroth's SG 2 Immelmann, now about 20 years old and more or less a Bildband with supplemental text. Unfortunately it lacks the data that Mr Williams is seeking.

To the LwGQM which Jim Perry has already mentioned should be added ULTRA: Main Series of Signals Conveying Intelligence, etc., from which some snippets might be gleaned.

Manfred Greihl's Stuka book, which is available in English, discusses Stuka usage by each unit flying the Ju 87. The unit histories are only summaries, but the genaral outline is complete.

This book is one of the better aircraft histories.

Default Just a correction

Alfred Humer had 21 planes shot down not 20
