Gather around the watercooler and let me tell you about the book I just read…
The German Aces Speak: World War II Through the Eyes of Four of the Luftwaffe’s Most Important Commanders
by Colin D. Heaton & Anne-Marie Lewis
This book contains interviews and stories from four Luftwaffe pilot. Walter Krupinski and Adolf Galland, who are two of the more famous Luftwaffe aces, and Eduard Neumann and Wolfgang Falck. The latter two might be less well know but are equally intersting in there own right. The way this book is presented it feels less like a documentary style and more like a transcript of a pleasant conversation in a pub somewhere with these pilots telling war stories. It was a pleasant read and I would recommend it to anyone interested in World War II aviators.
