Many years ago, we publisher had the signature page signed by 13 Luftwaffe fighter pilots, so that is complete and ready for the book. They traveled over the U.S., Canada and throughout Germany in order to secure these rare signatures. All of these men have passed, so we are fortunate to have completed the signature page when we did. Each of these gentlemen signed all 350 pages which will be bound into the book as the first page after the end paper.
The deluxe, limited edition of 350 copies signatorie page has been signed by Oskar Bösch, Karl H. Pütt, Horst Petzschler, Gerhard Thyben, Hans-Ekkehard Bob, Gerhard Hanf, Elias Kühlein, Willhelm Moritz, Herbert Schlüter, Willi Unger, Siegfried Müller, Gerhard Kroll and Rolf Hermichen.
