5.0 out of 5 stars The Other Side Of The Story, 17 Jan 2004

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Enemy in the Dark: The Story of a Luftwaffe Night-fighter Pilot (Fortunes of War) (Paperback)
This remarkable memoir was originally written by a thoughtful and intelligent man in an attempt to clarify 'how it was' to his grand-children.
In tone, the only book which comes to mind in similarity is Miles Tripp's classic 'The Eighth Passenger'. Herr Spoden's reflections on the rise of Nazism, night-fighting and the collapse of Germany make for engrossing reading - his anecdote about being personally awarded the Iron Cross First Class by Goering is especially enjoyable.
Personal memoirs from German Night-fighter 'aces' are very few and far between. This book is an absolute bargain at the price and should be on every serious Bomber Command bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying twice...., 1 Dec 2009

This review is from: Enemy in the Dark: The Story of a Luftwaffe Night-fighter Pilot (Fortunes of War) (Paperback)
I originally read my first copy of this several years ago; this book gives a rare insight into the early life, training and combat career of a German nightfighter pilot fighting not only against the night bombing offensive but also in Yugoslavia. The uniqueness of this book lies in the way it is written, the author originally wrote this account for his family and this gives you an account from an original perspective. I managed to lose my original copy and have managed to find another but have had to pay way over the original cost; I believe it is now out of print. This is a must have for any Bomber Command/NachtJagd bookshelf.
