This new book focuses on the Germany's second highest scoring fighter ace Gerhard Barkhorn, who scored a total of 301 air victories. Compared to the highest scoring ace Eric Hartmann, Barkhorn is almost forgotten today. This book describes Barkhorn’s wartime experiences with JG 2 on the English Channel, JG 52, JG 6 and finally JV 44.

Excerpts from original combat reports enable the reader to feel the drama of the events that happened back then. Barkhorn’s career in the post-war Bundeswehr is also examined.. The book tells, completely in English and German language, about his life and shows a lot of large B+W photos also 35 color photos of which some were taken by Barkhorn himself while he was flying over the Caucasus. The book also contains 15 full page color profiles of all the machines that Barkhorn flew as well as claim lists and more information about Barkhorn.

About Us

J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing went into business in 1983 as Military Book Distributor, selling other companies’ books through the mail. Many of those books were in German, and so during the next few years a number of individuals commented on how it would be nice to see them in English. I investigated the costs and possibilities, and the first book was printed; 400 copies of a 40-page biography on Paul Hausser (how many of you own that one?). This was followed by European Volunteers, the first hard cover and first translation. And here we are now, almost 100 books later, and many more to go.

From the first day, the company’s objective was to provide translations of the very best German-language books covering the German ground forces in WW II and to publish them in a format that would last many years (hard cover, on acid-free paper, with laminated covers). It appears that we have been fairly successful.

Started as a one-man operation by John Fedorowicz, the company grew steadily until more help was needed. Over time, 3 partners came on board and we added Tiger Hobbies as a local outlet for modelers and book buyers. Eventually, as times and economic circumstances demanded, the company has returned to the original owner. However, Sharron, who came on board in 2002 as office manager, has stayed to keep me in line and on target. Ken helps with Tiger Hobbies. So here we are, John, Sharron and Ken - when you call you will get one of us.

Defying the hard economic situation, we plan to publish many more excellent books in the future and to serve your reading and modeling needs for many more years.
