Brilliant description of a young man who just wanted to fly and got his wish! A frank description of the terrible war on the Russian front
in WW11. Vivid 'seat of the pants' descriptions of the air war in Europe on both east and Western campaigns.

I've read plenty of memoirs written by allied aviators, so I found this a very interesting read. However, I felt that the author could have used more detail (I am not a reader who enjoys too much, novel-like detail). Some of his victories are described, but how did he feel before, during and after these kills? And that is really the main flaw of this book. He offers very little by way of a description of his emotional responses to his experiences, including some which were undoubtedly quite traumatising. Overall, worth a read and I enjoyed it.

This is an excellent first hand autobiography of a Luftwaffe fighter pilot, including his training, operational service mainly on the Eastern front (42 victories), home life, marriage and what happened when the war ended. It is fascinating , well written, entertaining and superbly translated, with a nice collection of personal photos. Strongly recommended.

An object lesson in how even the most open minded - reasonable - person can still become trapped and embroiled within the maw of an increasingly demented and self destructive war machine!

An excellent read. This was a patriotic German defending his country against horrendous odds and political suicidal interference. Good to read the other side's point of view.

An unusual and interesting story and a marked contrast to those of pilots who flew on the allied side. Strongly recommended

A story well wrote very difficult to put down. Each chapter tells a brilliant story and this is why its so riviting.

Extremely good story as regards the view from the other side, a trifle stiff but absorbing.

A great story from what appears to be a lovely man.
