Product Description

Janzen joined the German Air Force on 4 May 1916. Following pilot training he was assigned to Jasta 23 in November 1916 and scored his first victory with this unit before being reassigned to Jasta 6 in October 1917. He briefly assumed command of Jasta 4 on 28 March 1918 but just a week later returned to Jasta 6 as the new CO. Scoring his 5th victory on 4 May 1918, Janzen’s Fokker Dr1 was shot down five days later. He survived the crash and scored 8 more victories, giving him a total of 13 kills, before he was shot down again on 9 June 1918. On this occasion, the interrupter gear on his Dr1 malfunctioned during a dogfight with a SPAD and he shot off his own propeller. Janzen again survived but was captured and remained a prisoner until the end of the war.
