{detailed description}After more than forty years Hajo Herrmann, one of the best known Luftwaffe pilots of World War II has written his autobiography.
With well over three hundred operational missions and with a tally of nine RAF bombers destroyed during mass attacks on Germany the author was one of the most successful Luftwaffe pilots of World War II. The author writes about his career from the early days when he was an officer cadet in the German army, through his experiences as a founder member of the Condor Legion in Spain, to the part he played in the war. Herrmann was an acknowledged expert in anti-shipping operations, a divisional commander and creator of the 'Wild Boar' method of night fighting. He was a close confidant of Herrmann Goering, who promoted him to high office in the fighter defence of the Third Reich.
Ten years as a prisoner of war in Russia, questions from historians and institutions, and his passion for flying have until now prevented him from writing. The wide range of books published on the basis of his information — often misleading and inconsiderate of the most important facts and background — finally persuaded Hajo Herrmann to write about the Luftwaffe himself. He is a gifted writer and a dedicated historian so Eagle's Wings is more than the biography of an outstanding airman: it is also a unique contribution to the history of a turbulent era.
