First edition from 1941 of Ernst Udets book on his remarkable life as a soldier and a pilot It describes his adventures around the world till his suicide in 1941, which, also in this book, was covered up as being a flight accident during a testflight by the Nazi propaganda machine.
On their way to attend Udet's funeral, the World War II fighter ace Werner Mölders died in a plane crash in Breslau and high "General der Flieger" Helmuth Wilberg died in another plane crash near Dresden.
One of the Curtiss Hawk planes Göring bought for Udet for the resurrection of the Luftwaffe still exists as a exhibit in the aviation museum in Krakau, Poland. A silent testimony to a great pilot.
Please note: this book is in the old German Gothic script and therefor a bit more difficult to read as a modern reprint.
