The original is a combination of water color and ink on paper.
Wolfgang Falck was a German Luftwaffe fighter ace during World War II. He was one of the key organisers of the German night fighter defences.
He became Kommodore of the first dedicated night fighter unit, the “Nachtjagdgeschwader 1” in June 1940. He was commanding the NJG 1 for three years, and in partnership with General Josef Kammhuber they shaped and developed a highly effective night fighter force.
Falck was a friend of Claus Graf Schenk von Stauffenberg, and came under suspicion by the Gestapo after the July 20 Plot.
Falck was awarded the Iron Cross (2nd and 1st class), and the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross on 1 October 1940 as Major and Geschwaderkommodore of NJG 1.
