I am reading, The Germans in Normandy, a Christmas gift. It concerns the German experience in Normandy oddly enough.
I knew the Allies had achieved air superiority but reading what that meant to those on the receiving end really hammers home just what a terrifying advantage we had gained, albeit at great cost.
The following is an interview with Typhoon pilot Albie Götze. The Typhoon was a tank killer, a very dangerous job done at low level. His squadron suffered a very high rate of loss in Normandy, 13 pilots killed, and he later mentions that his Wing lost 21 killed in Operation Market Garden. No wonder it was a volunteer position.
