In his unique position as squadron adjutant, he recorded the lives and the deaths, the triumphs and the tragedies of Jagdgeschwader No. 1. His poignant descriptions of fighter tactics, his joy in flight and his fellow pilots are faithfully rendered in English from the old German script of the original German edition.
