Summary
The much-anticipated sequel to The German Aces Speak gives voice to four more of WWIIs most noteworthy German pilots.When The German Aces Speak published in 2011, Air & Space/Smithsonian magazine welcomed Colin Heatons and Anne-Marie Lewiss masterful command of interview-based narrative, writing, . . . what might have been numbing recitations of dogfights are instead vivid descriptions of life as a warrior during World War II. Indeed, it is this unexpected perspective, brought to life by the authors neutrality and thoughtful research, that illuminates a side of war largely hidden from the American public: the experience of the German Luftwaffe pilot. In The German Aces Speak II, Heaton and Lewis paint a picture of the war through the eyes of four more of Germanys most significant pilotsJohannes Steinhoff, Erich Alfred Hartmann, Guther Rall, and Dieter Hrabakput together from numerous interviews personally conducted by Heaton from the 1980s through the 2000s. The four ex-Luftwaffe fighter aces bring the past to life as they tell their stories about the war, their battles, their off-duty lives, their lives after the war, and, perhaps most importantly, how they felt about serving under the Nazi leadership of Hermann G<U+00de>oring and Adolf Hitler. Together, the memories of the events captured in The German Aces Speak II continue one of todays most unique World War II book series, unearthing a facet of the war that has gone widely overlooked for the American public
