Re: Fighter pilots chicken?

“they were not eager to fight, were not brave, did not fight with the last ounce of energy”, etc.

Just one small concrete evidence of the opposite: During the Battle of France, I./JG 2 reported that 70 % of all enemy aircraft it claimed shot down between 10 May och 15 June 1940 were French aircraft. Meanwhile, 90 % of this Jagdgruppe's air combat losses were inflicted by French aircraft.
All the best,
