    The ad and title for this book implied personal accounts from Germman WWII aces. It is not close to offering you this type of literature. The author briefly introduces each year starting with 1942 as intro paragraphs; each paragraph regarding the airwar and background is no more than one paragraph in length taking less than 100 words to describe the background.

    Then he lists each fighter group, listing each bomber mission, the gives a statiscal account of the number of bombers lost by the USAAf, citing the number of these shot down by German pilots, he devotes almost 99% of the text in this manner. I don't recall more than four or five personal accounts and each of these less than 7-8 lines.

    He says very little about the defense provided by P-47's and P-51's. In this regard little is related regarding interaction between these fighters and the German pilots.

    He introduces these to planes, P-47's and P-51's, in the last 30 or so pages of his statistical reporting. The last 40 plus pages are used to repeat the listings of german pilots records.

    If you are looking for personal accounts of German pilots you will be disappointed. This book is no more than a posting of statistical numbers. Almost zero material is devoted to personal pilot accounts.
