In this same theatre Erich von Hartmann scored 352 enemy planes shot down.

Lees sy biografie. 'n Aangrypende en roerende verhaal.

Lees sommer ook oor Werner Voss. Ek beskou hom as die beste vegvlieenier van WWI. Sy tally was hoer as von Richthoven s'n toe hy afgeskiet is. Sy laaste battle is die stuff of legends!
Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

Hans-Ulrich Rudel wrote in his diary that at one stage he was recalled from the front to train new pilots back home. He detested it and expressed his dismay that these pilots were not able to put a 37mm round through a 100mm diameter target on the ground.
