Stille Adler. Die Ritterkreuzträger der Transportflieger 1940-1945

Stille Adler. Die Ritterkreuzträger der Transportflieger 1940-1945
Although they were in the shadow of the successful fighter pilots and dive bombers, the transport airmen were rewarded with high and highest honors for their achievements. 43 of them were awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross, the highest German bravery award during the Second World War.
For the first time this book is dedicated to this group of people. In addition to the CVs, the respective backgrounds to the awards are listed in detail. At the end of the war, the most successful pilots from the ranks of transport planes, who mainly flew the Ju 52, had exceeded the very high mark of 600 front flights at the end of the war. A total of 49 people will be presented. Ordered after the award date, the use of the transport planes during the war is treated from an orderly point of view. This book closes one of the few remaining gaps in the history of the bearers of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross.
With 401 hitherto unpublished pictures.
