Yeah, I'm intregued too..... unless depressing means realistic.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - G√ľnther Rall

Yeah got that book.you can see how the U.S lost so many guys now with only 1-2 getting out of a plane usually.would have been nice if they had gone into a bit more detail about the escorting fighters though.also intriguing how many German fighters were lost to sabotage!
