Overview

These detailed accounts of Luftwaffe combat operations are taken from the extensive series of interviews conducted with higher echelons of the German Fighter Force by the USAAF very shortly after the end of the Second World War.
The new generation of German fighters such as the Me.262 was at the forefront of the agenda and the USAAF were particularly keen to learn as much as they could about these machines and their successes and failures.
These fascinating insights cover the experience of the Luftwaffe during the whole war and are drawn from the interviews conducted by those who managed to excel despite all that was thrown at them: Heinz Bar, an ace with 240 victories to his credit; Walter Dahl, an anti-bomber specialist; ‘Hitsch’ Hitschhold, who undertook many high-risk operations with his Stukas and FW-190’s; and Adolf Galland of the Luftwaffe and author of the classic memoir, “The First and the Last.”
