review ´ The Star of Africa ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook The Star of Africa is a biography of the dramatic life and meteoric career of German Luftwaffe Captain Hans Joachim Marseille known to Germans and Allies alike during World War II as The Star of Africa Marseille a legendary figure in the annals of military history had over 100 kills to his name and was one of the rare recipients of the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves Swords and Diamonds the Third Reich's highest honor awarded for valor in combat Unlike other German fighter aces Marseille is also a famous figure in the public imagination in the United States and other English speaking countries where his rebellious nature iconoclastic behavior and early death have nourished his reputation just as greatly as his exceptional skill and chivalrous conduct as an adversaryComments from Those Who Kne. Even though Marseille s actual victory score is disputed by many historians this book undoubtedly makes it clear that he was one of the greatest fighter pilots of World War 2 The book gives great detail on his operational flying and his claimed victories and many anecdotes about him as a comrade from many different great fighter pilots of the Luftwaffe The book is than that though as the book follows him through his turbulent youth growing up in Nazi Germany and his early years in the Luftwaffe where he was a troublemaker before going to join the North African campaign While reading this book I realized that he was mere 22 year old at the time of his death and just how fast these men had to grow up during the War and make life and death decisions His devil may care attitude toward authority and the Nazi s also brings to light some interesting incidents and calling him the James Dean of his time is very accurate to me Great book about a great man who was on the wrong side at the wrong time as he can surely be counted as one of the Greatest Generation

The Star of Africa by Colin D Heaton and Anne Marie Lewis is a fascinating biography of Luftwaffe ace Hans Joachim Marseille who is credited with 158 aerial victories mostly in the skies over North Africa Although the authors did a diligent job explaining the complexities and excitement of air to air combat they truly excelled in unraveling Marseille s paradoxical psychology Marseille was a naturally gifted pilot but was also a rebellious and insubordinate officer with a big mouth and no filter who constantly ridiculed Nazi dogma often in the presence of high party officials Heaton and Lewis superb historical account of Marseille explains how he was able to survive in Hitler s totalitarian state against the odds despite standing against everything the regime stood for while also becoming one of the greatest aces of World War II Highly recommended for readers of thoughtful history
