A hugely enjoyable read, even if a little uneven at times. It ends just as the Nazi era is emerging, so Udet's concluding sentences are for a false dawn. (A longer introduction or postscript would have been nice, just to convey the extent to which he felt betrayed by Goering etc). However, as an account of the early years of aerial combat it is a treasure.
There's a list of aerial victories at the end but no attempt at the 'who got who', which can sometimes be an interesting exercise. Overall though an excellent addition to the collection of anyone with an interest in aviation history or World War I.
