Re: Top ace of the calendar year

Hello there Gentlemen,

it seems to me as if in 1945 Germans didn't care much about the act of claim confirmation. Those who fought, did so not for glory but for their sense of duty. Those who didn't fight strove for a safe assignment behind a desk or in a non-operational unit. Annoyingly, some of the latter eagerly tried to add to their score postwar. And one of the worst examples might have been Dahl.
I wonder who will be the first author to discredit his 1945 score in a book.

Michael
