  • Eye opening book about one mans war

    This book has made me feel that the German people had just the same struggle as we did in fact there's seemed to be even greater having to contend with the invading Russian army, well armed and well supported against what comes across as a rather scant German effort. This book is up with the very best sellers if WW2 is your subject.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Awesome

    An interesting perspective on the eastern front as I’ve only read first hand accounts from foot soldiers. A great insight into dive bombing tactics and manoeuvres. I highly recommend this book.

  • Reverse POV

    The viewpoint from the German side is not that much different than ours for the ordinary soldier.

  • Skilled pilot

    It is interesting to read of the experiences of someone involved in that part of the conflict. He certainly was impressed with his perceived victories, possibly embellished somewhat, and his nationalistic fervor was really over the top.

  • Stuka Pilot

    The book is interesting and written very clearly from the viewpoint of the German pilot. I bought this book as a historical view of the Stuka dive bombers. This is described in great detail. The description of the Russian advance eastward towards Germany does not agree with other historical records in that their efforts are downplayed as incompetent. While the Germans defended well many times they were obviously pushed right back until much of their country was occupied by Russians. Rudel did have a remarkable war record but I found it hard to believe that the newer more advanced Russian fighters were so easily out maneuvered by Stuka dive bombers. His naivety in regarding a German conquered world as much better than a Russian one was very clear. I am surprised that Douglas Bader wrote the foreword since Rudel helped Josef Mengele, “the Angle of death”, who did experiments on Jewish concentration camp prisoners, to escape to Argentina where he remained protected. Bader should have removed the foreword after this was known, and just labeled Rudel as a skilled and very lucky Nazi. A better pilot to read about is Adolf Galland and his version of the Luftwaffe was that they were not Nazi party members. The book has typos and some grammatical errors.

    Thanks for your feedback!
