First person accounts - Ploesti 1944

Is anyone aware of any first person accounts by German (or Romanian) aircrew of the 1944 defense of Ploesti?

If so, I would be most grateful to learn of the reference.

Thanks,
david isby

The book "La chasse de jour allemande en Roumanie" by Roba and Mombeek (Editions Modelism International srl - Bucarest 1994) is a reference, albeit written in French.
