I purchased this book in the hope of getting the life story on Hans Ulrich Rudel but instead I got a picture book - the photos are great but there is only a small amount of written information.

THIS IS A VERY EXCITING AND TRUE STORY FROM WORLD WAR 2. THIS GERMAN PILOT HANS RUDEL HAS SANK A RUSSIAN BATTLE SHIP AND BUSTED RUSSIAN ARMOR ON THE EASTERN FRONT OVER 9 HUNDRED PIECECES. IT WAS A VERY INTRESTING AND VERY REWARDING NONFICTION ACCOUNT. PROBABLY LOOKS LIKE THE A-10 THUNDERBOLT IRAQ FREEDOM.

Stuka Pilot for me was an enthralling read not just about the air war but the life of the German soldier on the Eastern Front. Hans Ulrich Rudel would have to be the toughest and bravest airman of the War, nothing could keep him from his mission : To annihilate the Russian Forces and achieve victory for his country not even his leg getting shot off below the knee. Throughout the book one immediately is impressed with Rudels passion and obsession in waging war. It is also interesting to read his opinions on where it all went wrong for Germany as well as his views on the Soviet war machine and the policy of the Western Allies in helping them.

Rudel was simply the greatest military pilot of WWW II. He flew more than 2600 missions (most of them flying obscolent Stukas in Russia- the most unmerciful battle ground of WW II !!!). HE had one leg amputed and still flew!! He was a total Nazi, also, fanatic for his country and his FUehrer. His book, 'Stuka Pilot' shows this clearly. But this book has lots of photos (in this aspect is perfect), but for the reader who wants to know more about Rudel, it has very little new information.
