By John Weal

Jagdgeschwader three won't have an analogous rapid resonance as a number of the extra recognized Luftwaffe fighter devices, such Jagdgeschwader 2 'Richthofen', however it is arguably the archetypal German fighter formation of global battle 2. not just did it perform each crusade fought through the Luftwaffe (with the exceptions of Poland and Norway), it flew each significant variation of the 2 mythical German wartime combatants, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 and the Focke-Wulf Fw one hundred ninety – beginning with the Bf 109E in 1939 and finishing with the Fw 190D-9 'Long-nose' in 1945. And, throughout the process the hostilities, it numbered between its ranks greater than 70 Knight's go winners (a overall passed via just one different Jagdgeschwader). The wealth and diversity of aspect afforded by way of the sort of historical past – along with the ancient battles of england, Stalingrad, Kursk, Normandy, the Ardennes and Berlin – offers an awesome framework upon which to painting the multitude of reports, exploits and supreme fates of the numerous aces themselves, from the now unknown trio who accomplished their first 5 kills throughout the Blitzkrieg in France within the past due spring/early summer time of 1940 to the approximately two-dozen hugely acclaimed and lauded 'centurions' who flew with JG 3.
