Description

Autobiography of WW2 Nazi pilot Hans Rudel the most highly decorated German serviceman of WW2, and the only one to be awarded the Third Reich's most prestigious medal which was specially created for Rudel by Hitler himself, the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Golden Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds. Shot down over 24 times, Hans Rudel is credited with destroying over 500 tanks, 2,000 ground targets, the Russian battleship Marat, two cruisers and a destroyer, and was so successful against Russian forces that Joseph Stalin put up a 100,000 rouble ransom on his head. His flying record of over 2,500 missions remains unmatched by any pilot since. Until his death in 1982 Hans Rudel remained a loyal supporter of Adolf Hitler, and he refused to denounce Hitler, or the Nazis, and believed that the German invasion of Soviet Russia and "Lebensraum" (Living Space) was correct. Hans Rudel remains a complex character, and arguably one of WW2's most heroic figures. This book is the original uncensored edition first published by his friend the British Fascist leader Oswald Mosley.

    A fascinating perspective on WWII from a true hero of the fatherland. It shows the effectiveness of propaganda on people and the heroism of Germans fighting for Germany not for any political agenda.

    This was a detailed look into the life of a German pilot's life. How often he skirted death and still took to the skies not wanting to abandon his men. A fascinating book.
