Re: Leutnant Peter Horn, JG51

The 11 victories are as far as I remember quoted in Aders, Gebhard and Werner Held, Jagdgeschwader 51 "Mölders" : eine Chronik : Berichte - Erlebnisse – Dokumente, Motorbuch Verlag, 1985 (ISBN: 3613010453).

The information is also quoted in Neulen, Hans Werner, In the Skies of Europe. Air Forces Allied to the Luftwaffe 1939-1945, The Crowood Press Ltd., 2000.

But I have seen no reference to further (1st hand) sources. Tony Wood's claims records are of little help here, as different pilots named Horn are credited with 9 victories, but only one by a 9./JG51 pilot (a Gefreiter).
