Gunther Bloemertz was one of the legendary "Abbeville Boys" of Jagdgeschwader 26 who flew Focke Wulf Fe190 day fighters from their base in Northern France. He describes life and death on the squadron, his fellow pilots and their almost daily duels with RAF Spitfires and USAAF Flying Fortresses, fought at both ground level and in the stratosphere over the Pas de Calais. Following the D-Day landings, his Gesdchwader was eventually forced to retreat into Germany in August 1944 from where they fought an increasingly desperate battle against the Allied massed bomber streams. He concludes his story by relating the part he played as a fighter pilot defending the crumbling Third Reich into is final death throes, when he was shot down in a dogfight in the last hours of the war and horrifically burned. The story emphasizes that apart from the small number of Nazi fanatics in their ranks, there was little to distinguish the average Luftwaffe pilot from his opposite number in the RAF or USAAF.
