A very disappointing book. Its provides no real insight into his experiences as a wartime pilot. The book progresses from childhood, through his wartime experiences to post war career. The main problem with this book is the briefness of it all. For example a four page chapter is provided on the Battle of Britain, Operation Barabarossa etc. More time is given to a political justifcation of Germany's action during the 2nd World war. The book also contains a number of text errors and mistakes and omissions in translation. I Would not recommend reading.
