Luftwaffe Fighter Ace,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Luftwaffe Fighter Ace (Hardcover)
Luftwaffe fighter ace provides an interesting and in depth insight into the day to day life of an average fighter pilot on the Eastern front. Nobert Hanning began operations with JG54 and served until the end of the war flying over 200 missions and achieving 42 victories whilst flying the FW190. The book traces his career from his high school days to his post war career. The most interesting part of the book is the element that charts his wartime exploits as little is written about day to day operations on the Eastern Front. This makes gripping reading as does his account of working with and flying with the likes of Emil ‘Bully’ Lang and Walter Nowotny. The book is extremely well translated and contains a number of excellent pictures. Highly recommended.
