An important account,
This review is from: First and the Last (Hardcover)
Galland was a key figure in the German fighter arm from its inception to the very end. It is no surprise therefore that this is a must read for anybody interested in the air war on the western front. It is also an interesting commentary on the inadequacies of the German war effort and the hierarchy.
The frustration Galland felt at what could have been done better is the recurrent theme. Perhaps it's just as well he wasn't listened to more for Galland was a talented pilot and clear headed commander who made many sensible deductions from his experience, which could have cost the allies dearly.
