This article tells the story of the Luftwaffe‘s single-engine night fighters. Conceived during early 1943 as a means of making up for a general shortage of night fighters, the experimental tactics provided initial successes, but as technology developed the night air war became increasingly difficult to fight in single-engine aircraft. This article is packed with first-hand accounts from the pilots who flew the Luftwaffe’s single-engine night fighters over Western Europe from mid-1943 towards the end of the war.

Using primary sources and many first-hand accounts, this 18-page article takes you into the cockpit of the fighter aircraft during the night missions. It is illustrated with sixteen photos, six aircraft profiles and two unit emblems.
