Question about 39-40 war history of Hptm Helmut Lipfert

Hello,

This pilot is the subject of one of our EoE 1939-40 profile series being created at present. He has published a late war (1943-45) history titled "Das Tagbuch des Helmut Lipfert."

Is there any similar source or resource for his early war experiences?

Regards,

Larry Hickey

Dear Mr. Hickey, the Book was written by Werner Girbig (1931 - 2001) in 1973 and beginns with the Diary of Lipfert at the 26. November 1942.

Greetings Peglar
