about

Action-packed memoir of aerial combatInside the cockpits of Bf 109, Fw 190, and Me 262 fightersCandid photos taken by the author himselfNorbert Hanning remembers an attack on a Soviet bomber: "I side-slipped down towards his tail, got in close behind him, and aimed at his two starboard engines. Pieces flew off his wing as my shells struck home. Bright flames streamed from his engines . . . an inferno erupted as his wing tanks went up."
Norbert Hanning served on the Eastern Front from 1943 to 1945 and scored forty-two kills. He lives in Germany.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luftwaffe Fighter Ace A truly astounding rendition of the Eastern Front through the eyes of a Luftwaffe Fighter Pilot... Its hard to find stories about the eastern front in english. And even rarer to find an account of a German pilots perspective in English. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this book and highly recommend it. It covers his whole story from glider training as a boy, WW2 combat experience, to his surrender, and them service in the new german air force after the war.
