Wings of War : An Airman's Diary of the Last Year of the War Hardback
by Rudolf Stark
This is a rare day-to-day account by a young German squadron leader in Jagdstaffel 35 during the grim last year of the war. Originally published in 1933, it provides minute descriptions of kills, losses, and the Germans' step-by-step retreat in the face of increasingly overwhelming Allied forces in the air.
Brutally honest and vividly written, Stark's account of the end-game of the Imperial German Army Air Service provides an intimate, front-row glimpse of the death-throes of a once feared corps.
This book also contains reproductions of some of the author's paintings depicting life on the Western Front.
