Exemplary Biography of Five Luftwaffe Night-Fighter Aces! 25 septembre 2008
Par Michael OConnor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The exploits of Luftwaffe aces continue to fascinate. In this 2001 volume from England's Tempus Publishing, author David Williams offers a rare, in-depth look at five Luftwaffe night fighter aces. Well-researched and well-written, NIGHT FIGHTERS is an absolutely first-class account of some deadly fighter aces.

Williams details the lives of five Nachtjager veterans: Wolfgang Falck, Georg Hermann Greiner, Werner Hoffmann, Peter Spoden and Paul Zorner. Falck, the most famous of the five, is widely credited as the 'father' of Germany's night-fighter force in WWII. Ironically, he has the least kills of the five aces, only scoring 7 kills. Griener flew with NJG 1, scoring 51 kills. Hoffmann's 51 victories were scored with NJG 3 and 5. Spoden flew with NJG 5 and 6, ending the war with 24 kills. Zorner flew with NJG 2, 3, 5 and 100, downing 59. All ended the war as Gruppe commanders or in high command positions.

What sets NIGHT FIGHTERS book apart from similar titles is the depth of Williams' research. A member of the German Fighter Pilots Association, he corresponded and met with all five pilots. Consequently his account of each pilot's life and military career is very detailed, offering a rare warts-and-all look at five unique individuals. The book's narrative include first-person reminiscences from the aces along with combat reports. Each chapter is illustrated with many photos, most supplied from that pilot's own archives. Also included are shots of their RAF and USAAF opponents.

In sum, NIGHT FIGHTERS exemplifies historical research at its finest. I'd give Williams' book six stars if possible. It's a must-have title and belongs on the shelf of every Luftwaffe enthusiast! Highly recommended.

Study of Night Fighter Methods and Pilots 10 mars 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is different in two ways: featuring just five of the many 'Experten' in WW II Luftwaffe, and highlighting how different conditions were during their careers. The pilots were Wolfgang Falck, Georg Hermann Greiner, Werner Hoffmann, Peter Spoden and Paul Zorner. Photos show progression from young trainees to certified pilot, then decorated ace.
Night fighting used cutting edge technology to get close- unlike daytime, when combatants could see bombers from 15 or more miles away. Even when the searchlight units illuminated a target, it could escape before you closed to firing range. That is when ground controllers guided a pilot to within range of their on-board 'Lichtenstein' radar (4 Km). Then, it was teamwork of a good radar operator to interpret scopes and steer his pilot to visual range.
In Zorner's case, he graduated from school, and he became an instructor until his Ju 52 was re-assigned to Mediterranean duties, then Iraq, followed by Crimea. With instrument and night experience, he transferred to the Nachtjagd. 1 July 1942, he was assigned to a base in Holland, right under a major route of RAF bombers. He recounted:
'This is where I actually received the necessary training, especially theory for night fighter combat. Although I was regarded as one of the experienced pilots at that time with my 1,200 hours of flying, I still had to fly more than twelve hours in the Junkers 88 in the first six weeks. There was of course an extended tactical introduction held by the most successful pilots of the group. This included such well known men as Prinz zu Sayn Wittgenstein and Heinz Struning, both holders of the Knight's Cross. ' (p. 171)
His first opportunity to score, 17 August, 1942 he opened fire from too far away, and the Britisher quickly disappeared into clouds. That was the night when the RAF bombed V-2 rocket research grounds. Although he did not know it, the balance had tipped and Germany would soon suffer worse. On 5 March, Bomber Command started the Battle of the Ruhr- Essen (Krupps weapons plants) and cities along the Ruhr (also the Gelsenkirchen oil plant), the Dams Raid on 17 May, and on 30 May, Cologne was hit by 1,046 bombers. Even a dozen Nachtjager could not stop 1,000 bombers simultaneously arriving over a city.
He soon hits his stride and finished the war with 59 victories.
Good pictures, reproductions of victory medals, victory dates and promotions of each man, listing of top Nachtjagd pilots and bases mentioned in book, navigational map with coded quadrants (to locate where each abschuss occurred) and glossary of terms. All in all, a very useful view into the men trying to shield their fellow civilians.
