For what it’s worth – I’ve read this book. It’s been awhile, but the main thing I took away from it, was learning how germany coped with deciding on/producing aircraft throughout the war. The other story that stands out in my mind from this book was when a maintenance chief added a piece of armor to Galland’s BF109 canopy, and much to the Chief’s (and Galland’s) embarrassment, bumped his head on it (hard) when he closed it. On his flight he got bounced by Spitfires, one of which almost shoots him down, and Galland was spared thanks to the added armor. Then Galland goes on about the Chief, arranges to have him given a leave, sending him off with a expensive bottle of wine…and ends the story with “I valued my head that much…” While I’m sure that the book wasn’t 100% accurate or impartial, do think it was worth reading and gave a really good insight on the Luftwaffe.
