    You have a list (with title and author) of any good books that talk about WW2 aces from axis countries only, I am not looking for books on Allied countries aces. I want books on Axis aces only. Plz give me a list if you have any.

    Günther Rall just had his bio published.

    Hermann Graf and Alfred Grislawski has been done by Christer Bergström

    Hajo Hermann : Eagles Wings

    Helmut Lippfert also had his done through Schiffer Publications

    Star of Afrika-Hans-Joachim marseille, another Schiffer pubs book and in fact hit up their webiste and check through all the Luftwaffe titles as their probably are others.

    Will Reschkes JG 301/302, his personal bio of sorts or at least his operations in both units plus covering both units in some details although there are errors just like in toliver and Constables Horrido.......Yuk !

    First and the Last, Addi Galland

    Footsteps of the Hunter by ace Adolf Dickfeld.........what a waste of paper, and one of the worst personal books I have ever read, do not bother !

    that should get you going.

    Will Heilmanns book is also questionable in some cases, as well as Walter Dahl's Rammjäger, and although some good quotes is full of himself blowing his bogus scoring record all out of proportion, I borrowed a copy and quickly returned it bac to a friend

    Just spotted the thread: look at the link I've posted under 'Aces' topic: the site references a bibliography of the sources
