9780859791861: Luftwaffe Eagle: From the Me109 to the Me262

Luftwaffe pilot Walter Schuck flew the Me109 in the Arctic Sea fighter squadrons becoming the Russian air force's feared enemy in the far north. Awarded the Knights Cross in April 1944 he claimed his 100th kill in June of that year, then barely 48 hours later shot down 12 aircraft in one day, a record never achieved by any other Arctic Sea pilot.

Celebrated by his colleagues for his skill, courage, sheer guts and chivalry including the deep feelings for those he shot down, he earned the nickname "Adler der Tundra" or "Northern Knight."

In this autobiography, the author tells his story simply, conveying his impressions of life, the rationale of the Lufwaffe and the everyday life of a military man in those times, including the difficulties and hardships of the war in the Arctic Seas. In a gripping narrative, the author helps us to understand why he and his colleagues were prepared to lay down their lives for their people, and their country.

Rich in detail and facts and supplemented by photographs from his personal collection and color aircraft profiles, Walter Schuck helps us to put the past into context, painting a unique picture of life in the Luftwaffe during the times of the Third Reich.

From the Back Cover:

Luftwaffe pilot Walter Schuck flew the Me109 in the Arctic Sea fighter squadrons becoming the Russian air force’s feared enemy in the far north. Barely two months after being awarded the Knights Cross in April 1944 he shot down 12 aircraft in one day―a record never achieved by another Arctic Sea pilot.

His mastery continued when in March 1945 he joined Jagdgeschwader 7, newly equipped with Me262 jet fighters and shot down two Allied fighters on his first operation. Taking command of the third Staffel of JG 7 his success in the aerial theater was unsurpassed until meeting one of the bombers’ escort fighters in combat, his fuel system exploded and he had to bail out. Walter Schuck’s war was over, after 500 front line sorties and 206 confirmed kills.

Celebrated by his colleagues for his skill, courage, sheet guts and chivalry including the deep feelings for those he shot down, he earned the nickname ‘Eagle of the Tundra’ or ‘Northern Knight.’

Rich in detail and facts and supplemented by photographs from his personal collection, Walter Schuck’s story helps us to put the past into context, painting a unique picture of life in the Luftwaffe during the times of the Third Reich.

About the Author:

Credited with 206 confirmed aerial victories, Walter Schuck is among the most famous of WWII Luftwaffe fighter aces. His fellow comrades respected him for his outstanding combat skills, his courage and boldness but above all, they admired him for his chivalrousness in the air and his deep sympathy for downed comrades or defeated opponents. They also named him: Eagle of the Tundra and Northern Knight.
