A Hungarian ace passed away

Just got the very sad news from the family: 1st Lieutenant László Máthé passed away yesterday. He ended the war as a squadron commander and an ace with 12 kills. He lived in Argentina after the war and passed away there as well.

May he rest in peace, he was a very brave and tough officer and an excellent fighter pilot.

P.S. You can read more about him in my forthcoming Hungarian aces book.

That´s sad... So you could contact some ones in Argentina. Hope the contacts are being useful for your research.

Sergio - as I mentioned you long time ago, finally found László Máthé, but unfortunately, I cannot find the family of Lipcsey in Argentina...

See you soon,

Re: A Hungarian ace passed away

Csaba,

I have a couple of requests with regard to László Máthé. Do you know where in Argentina he died? Do you have an obituary for him, or know where I might obtain one? Even in Spanish. Finally, do you have his date and place of birth?

Frank Olynyk.

Re: A Hungarian ace passed away

He was born on 28 August, 1919, but my book contains not just these basic details, but much-much more about him (and about other aces): details of his kills, including his Liberator with Serial no, unit and even a photo of the wreck, number of sorties, his nicknames, his very detailed military career in four pages, his Hungarian and German awards with the awarding dates etc, etc, etc

Csaba,

Thanks for the birthdate information. Will your book be in English or Hungarian? Do you have an expected publication date? I look forward to seeing it, regardless of the language.

Frank.

Frank,

The release of the Hungarian edition is October, 2006. Regarding the English version, I don't have contract with a publisher, yet.
