Re: A Few Questions to Forgotten Heroes - Aces of the Royal Hungarian Air Force in WWII (second revised, expanded edition)

Congratulations on a very successful book, great work, a lot of heart, very careful edition.

A few questions:

How many fighter pilots had served in Hungarian aviation from 1938-1945?

How many of them reported at least one victory?

I wonder if you got a 20 to 80 ratio in your book (20 percent of the pilots had 80 percent of the victories)?

How do you estimate the number of real wins (planes completely destroyed) to report successes (planes shot down) by Hungarian pilots?

regards,
mirekw

Zászlós (Flight Officer) Dezső Szentgyörgyi had two shared 'kills'. Details in Magyar Warriors, vol. 2, published by Helion & Co., in 2017, pages 155-157.

Good afternoon Csaba,

I'm looking for biographies of aces who were the top-scorers of their plane type. Can you tell me the plane type of the reconnaissance pilots you mentioned ?

I wish you a good New Year's Eve, sincerely,

Michael
