@WTE-Ibis

thanks for your comments-

yes I have read this book and thought I had posted the review but cant find it there so Ill reread it and post my thoughts or please feel free to add your thoughts to the forum once you have read it.

I recon this is close to being the best account from the viewpoint of a Luftwaffe pilot - lots of details and descriptions on air combat, I dont think youll be dissapointed with it.
IMHO It only gets beaten by Alert in The West see here

but it is close and I suppose it is only because I am more interested in the western front than the eastern.

the book is also reviewed here to give you some more info
