    I have to find it but somewhere I have a book signed by Paul Tibbets. It was a book either he wrote or helped someone write. He was at an airshow in 2002, it was 50 dollars for the book and him to sign it!

    what utter bull crap having LW fighter aces book on page signed by a japanese pilot. sounds like one of Robert Taylors artist renderings geting pilots to sign that have nothing to do with the painitng and here we see over and over the same players signing numerous book plates and the silly and absurd selling of these books not worth the asking price. if the F.Aces book is going for 1800. 00 US then my volume 1 should over 6,000 - grand that is............total silliness

    thanks for positng colin I got a great laugh. By the way Falk was a pleaseure to visit with in his time, very gracious and humble like 9/10ths of the German veterans I have interviewed by many means.

    Kinda makes you wonder if some old ladies are in some basement signing other people's names. The signature taped/glued inside the cover is a tad odd IMHO.

    Why would you fake a signature of Hitler on a book that was published after WW2?

    I'm unreliably informed he's working on a fourth reich somewhere in Antarctica, he needs all the promotion he can get.

    Those of us over forty remember this event with a quiet smile...

    Selling Hitler

    I only have one autographed book, "Enemy In The Dark" by Peter Spoden of NJG 5. He's a very nice man and didn't charge me £1000 for it. If he's reading this thread he might in the future though.

    Hi Peter! :lol:
