Guy who live in america do you any good books about WW2 aces, or some stories or something like that.



Only in the spirit of attack, born in a brave heart, will bring success to any fighter aircraft, no matter how highly developed it may be.

"Fighter Pilot" - Paul Richey (1941).

I've read lots of them, but this is one of the best-written accounts I've come across. There are lots of excellent aerial combat descriptions, because he wrote diary notes straight after each combat.

Excellent learning and published (anonymously at first) in 1941, so this really is straight from the horse's mouth without the inevitable degradation to the memory that permeates many similar works.
