FalkeEins will become famous soon enough

not only that Ruy but (not wishing to appear sexist here) most of the book was put together by his wife..
As George points out, Dahl states that by 4 April he had 110 Abschüsse ..however Dahl also writes that he finished the war with 128 - a figure quoted in just about every bio - in other words he scored nearly 20 victories in just over 3 weeks even though he wasn't flying on operations !!! (he mentions only undertaking a number of Erkundungsflüge - eg 24 April -which resulted in combat )I think we can conclude that a large number of these latter victories were indeed 'imaginary'....
