review The Star of Africa 103 That may have been what changed his attitudeSS Lt Gen Karl WolffWatching Marseille in the air was like watching a deadly aerial ballet He looked like he was twelve years old and often acted like it Major Werner Schroer Knight's Cross Oak Leaves and Swords JG 27Marseille was perhaps the best that the Luftwaffe had His record was only surpassed by his immature unrpofessionalism Col Hajo Herrmann Knight's Cross Oak Leaves and SwordsMen like Marseille captured the public imagination and rightly so they played a dangerous game and Marseille was perhaps the best to ever fly a fighterLt Gen Gunther Rall Knight's Cross Oak Leaves Swords with 275 victoriesThere was great rivalry for kills and Marseille boasted that he would beat all of usGeneral Gustav Rodel JG 27 Knights Cross Oak Leaves 98 victori. Hans Joachim Marseille was a great fighter pilot His skills were amazing great pilot and unbelievable shot but a rogue within the Luftwaffe and German military He was a deadly fighter pilot yet he had a soft spot for enemy pilots and risked his life than once to assist them when he knew they were no longer able to fight The descriptions of his air tactics and aircraft handling are fun to mentally recreate This is one of the best books about fighter pilots I ve read
