Re: Luftwaffe Eagle/Erich Sommer

Erich Sommer is the author. J. Richard Smith only wrote the introduction. £20.00. The descriptive blurb on the dustjacket is informative. No known reviews so far.

Re: Luftwaffe Eagle/Erich Sommer

I believe the book is based on Sommer's memoirs; he passed away some years back & is a joint effort between his daughter & Richard

Re: Luftwaffe Eagle/Erich Sommer

I have read the book and I recommend it. Short story of Erich Sommer with good detail on his life in the luftwaffe. Some good photos. Worth the money
