    a note Les, Kurt Welter was not the top German jet ace. he will be covered at great length in our book. Much of his kills were either bogus or other pilots claimed by him for propaganda reasons

    Chuck DeBellevue was not a pilot, he was a WSO. The two ace pilots of the war in Vietnam were Steven Ritchie and Duke Cunningham, both with 5 kills. I also note no reference to William C. Lambert, an American who flew with the 24th squadron, RFC, and scored 22 kills in WW1.

    In the 'TOP ACES OF WORLD WAR I' category, the top RFC/RAF ace was Billy Bishop 72 (Eddie Mannock claimed 73, but only 61 were verified).
    The top French ace was René Fonck 75. Fonck was the top allied ace of WWI.

    And he also was one of the few pilots (if isn't the only one) to be awarded a V.C.

    Later though the Luftwaffe system for claiming kills was very thorough.
