Adolf Galland, combat pilot with over 70 ''kills'' was commander of all fighter forces in the Luftwaffe during World War II. This is his story of Germany's war in the air, from the smashing victories in Poland and France to the last desperate battle to defend the Reich. This book combines the passion of combat and the perspective of command. . . . Some of his air-battles read almost as fast as the Messerschmitts he flew, and his staff battle accounts give the clearest picture yet of how the Germans lost their war in the air.
