The most successful fighter pilots of all time spring to vibrant life again in this revised and updated edition of the classic account of Germanys greatest aces in action. Ride into combat with such Luftwaffe luminaries as ace of aces Erich Hartmann, Gunther Rall, Gerhard Barkhorn and dozens of others as they provide first-hand accounts of the German fighter arms epic battle for the skies over Europe, Africa, and Russia. Accurate pen portraits illuminate outstanding fighter leaders and tutor like Werner Molders, Adolph Galland, "Macky" Steinhoff and many more, who invested the Luftwaffe Fighter Arm with its characteristic spirit and vigor. Legendary air heros like Marseille, and mercurial "Star of Africa", are shown in hundreds of photos from German collections. Personal combat accounts appear against the backdrop of Reichsmarschall Hermann Goring, who undermined his own pilots. From early aerial ascendancy, followed by its triumphant assault on the Red Air Force, the Luftwaffe Fighter Arm was inexorably crushed by overwhelming Allied air power. Unquenchable courage, devotion to the defense of their countrys civilians, and unmatched combat skills were of no avail. The great aces, even in Germanys revolutionary Me 262 jet fighter, could not win, yet they fought to the final hour in an unforgettable combat saga. All of it is here, exactly as it was lived by the German aces. This book is considered by surviving Luftwaffe aces to be their monument. Also included are data lists covering all known Luftwaffe aces, night fighter aces, jet aces, and tops & firsts.… (mais)

covering the top aces of the Luftwaffe with an overview and personal stories of pilots such as Erich Hartmann, Gunther Rall, Gerhard Barkhorn, Werner Molders, Adolph Galland, “Macky” Steinhoff & Marseille.
while some would claim this to be a comprehensive and insightful review of the role Luftwaffe fighter pilots in WW2, it is far from it - this work is hagiography ( 'gushing' ) and cannot be considered serious history. It contains little evidence of research, no footnotes or references but has unfortunately become the 'standard' work..the same authors Toliver and Constable's "The Blond Knight..." can likewise be discounted as an accurate reference - the authors did not have Hartmann's Flugbücher or JG 52's KTB for the 1944-45 period. The authors emphasise that the Luftwaffe system of verifying victories was very rigorous and rendered accurate the credited victory totals of Luftwaffe fighter pilots. Of course, the records of many leading Luftwaffe fighter aces have subsequently been shown to be very dubious.

Comprehensive, penetrative and insightful review of the role Luftwaffe fighter pilots in WW2. Introduction gives an excellent purview of the fallacies, successes and mistakes of German fighter operations. Encyclopedic anthology of most prolific fighter aces in warfighting history. ( )

I've got the 1st edition hardcover which isn't listed. If someone knows of a better source of information on the Jagdwaffe and it's pilots, LET ME KNOW! Amazing, what some of these guys survived! ( )
