    Sitzkrieg (Phony War to the English and Dr&ocirc;le de Guerre to the French) was the name given to the period of time along the western front during the winter of 39-40 when the armies of France, Britain, and Germany stood an watched each other. Aerially, however, things were not so quiet. Fighters patrolled along their fronts and occasionally crossed over to fight the opposing patrol.

    China and the Flying Tigers
    By late 1940, Claire Chennault convinced Chiang Kai-Shek to attempt to get more substantial aid from the United States. China (and Chennault) lobbied to form and arm an American Volunteer Group of 100 military pilots and 150 mechanics.All members of the AVG were officially employees of CAMCO serving under contract.
    The AVG was gathered up, shipped to Burma, and trained at Kyedaw, an airfield the British abandoned (as unhealthy for caucasians) from July to November, 1941. Just as they were ready for combat, the Japanese struck Pearl Harbor. Chennault moved his force back to China - except for 1 squadron, which he stationed at Mingaladon. 1 squadron remained in Burma (they roatated through) until it fell in early May, 1942. The AVG also flew in China, since that was its main rasion d'etre. AVG did many succesful missions and got lot of kills against japanese air force during this period.

    Battle of Britain ? Eagle Day
    Finally, Adlertag (Eagle Day) arrives on August 13, 1940. The Luftwaffe launches the much-delayed all-out air offensive against England. The German goal is to drive the RAF out of the skies over southern England in four days and destroy the RAF completely in four weeks. The British recognize that they cannot fight a battle of attrition and must maximize the effectiveness of their resources. Air Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding decides that the most effective strategy is to send small formations to disrupt and harry the German bombers. It?s a decision that proves correct; the British conserve valuable fighters while ravaging the German bomber formations.
    On Adlertag, the Luftwaffe loses 160 planes (78 destroyed, 33 probably, 49 dmgd) while the British lose 13. More importantly, of the 13 British planes shot down, six of the pilots return to fly again; German crews escaping their damaged planes land on enemy soil and are out of the war.

    Under African Sun
    Starting in January, 1941, the Luftwaffe came to North Africa to support the Italians. Eventually, they moved in 4 Geschwaderen (1 each of Bf109s, Bf110s, Ju88s, Ju87s). Additional units based across the Med in Sicily, Crete, and Greece pitched in. They bolstered the flagging Regia Aeronautica in the face of the advancing British Army.
    The British were still smarting under the night Blitz and suffered from a long supply line around Wurope and North Africa.

    Used planes:
    allied - Hurricane, Spitfire, P-40
    axis - Me-109, MC202, Ju52, Ju-87

    Midway: Mother of all carrier battles
    The first decisive U.S. naval victory over the Japanese in World War II. In the three-day battle in June 1942, U.S. carrier-based planes countered the Japanese naval and air assault of Midway Island in the Pacific. All four of Japan's aircraft carriers were sunk, devastating its naval air power, halting momentum, and relieving the threat to Hawaii. The Battle of Midway was a turning point in the Pacific war.

    Operation Jericho
    The occasion was an operation on February 18th 1944. The RAF was asked by the French Resistance to mount an operation to bomb Amiens prison with the intention of freeing as many French Resistance prisoners as possible, who were awaiting execution. The RAF named the raid 'Operation Jericho'. Three RAF airmen were killed in the attack. Subsequently it was learned that 258 of the 700 prisoners escaped (including half of those awaiting execution), and 102 prisoners were killed by British bombs or German machine gunners.

    Used planes:
    allied ? Mosquito VI, Typhoon
    axis ? FW190

    Charge of the Light Geschwader
    In 31 January 1944, the ground-attack FW190s of II/SG2 were sharing a base with the Bf109s of II/JG52. Attrition had left the Fighter Gruppe with only a handful of servicable aircraft, and so the FW190s were temporarily recalled to the air superiority role. A planned sortie by a pair from each Gruppe got off to a bad start when one of each pair aborted. The remaining mixed Rotte carried on, and engaged in two combats - one with a gaggle of Yaks without result for either side, the other against a group of Il-2s and their escorts which was more successful.

    Used planes:
    Alied - Yak-9, Il-2M3
    Axis - FW190F, Bf109F

    On 1 January 1945, the Luftwaffe launched Operation Bodenplatte, a massed attack on Allied airfields on the Continent by fighter-bombers. Catching most units by surprise, the FW190s and Me109s did destroy many Allied aircraft on the ground. The 60 aircraft of JG11 managed to damage or destroy 10 Spitfires of 126 Wing on their airfields, but from their base nearby, Mustangs of the 352nd Fighter Group got into the air, their leader destroying a FW190 even before his undercarriage retracted. Soon Mustangs and Thunderbolts were pursuing Messerchmitts and Focke Wulfs accross the treetops, and through this confusion some British machines also took off. Unfortunately for them, aircraft recognition was not the Americans' strong suit.

    Used planes:
    Alied ? P-51D, P-47D, Spitfire XIV, Typhoon
    Axis - FW190D, Me109G-10
