No need. I have the german edition of "The Blonde Knight of Germany" about Erich Hartmann. I do recognise products of the Cold War when I see them ...

Sorry and hats off to the veterans. No slant against them, they're as much the victims of state propaganda as the general audience.
+1 here. When propaganda gets so spread, it's really hard to tell it from reality. You know, truth, as Jaws 2002's battle plan, is the first casualty of war too, and prop has everything to do with it.

It was a real war not a game.
Sure. Their task was to protect bombers and to fly patrols. In russian campaign, in earlier stages of the war sometimes they took the plunge and chased planes on the deck....but that was more exception than a rule...Jabos are different story Im not talking about them....

And dont tell me about real war please....I experienced it recently....

Their first priority, beside surviving, was to shoot down enemy fighters whenever they had the chance and no countering orders.

The war in the air has changed quite a bit since then!
