As far as I know it's the real deal. And it does have the look for the period. The idea was to make an easily readable and understood guide for even the less cerebral piloten.

Yes, that's an official Luftwaffe manual. And it's not the only WW2 german "manual" with humorous illustrations and wording, the Tiger- and Pantherfibel tank manuals were done in the same style.

I thought it was designed/written by Trautloft, not Galland?

Very interesting, thanks for posting http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Did you guys notice the 'dirty sneaky Jew' cartoon thrown in on page 21 just for good measure....

I remember reading that the B-17 being so large threw off the atandard german gunsites originally.

oh and Galland was quite a hunter of game animals too..

Yes, I've heard that too. I think Galland did the foreword, and the rest (including illustrations) was Trautloft's work.
