Currently reading this 650 pg. monster from Thomas Childers and @simonbooks I have read many general histories of Nazi Germany and while my favorite will always be “Rise and Fall of the Third Reich” I would consider Mr. Childers book to be essential reading for WW2 enthusiasts. It’s a well written and researched book. Check it out, you will not be disappointed. @history_in_five #history #ww2 #wwii #germany #war

German aces Erich Hartmann and Gerhard Barkhorn. The two most successful fighter aces of all time, Hartmann shot down at least 352 Allied aircraft (345 Soviet & 7 American) while Barkhorn was credited with over 300 victories. Both men were highly decorated. Hartmann was one of only 27 men to be awarded the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords & Diamonds. Barkhorn was a recipient of the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves & Swords but even after reaching his 300th victory in January 1945 he never received his diamonds. Both men survived the war and served in the West German air force. Hartmann died in 1993 at the age of 71. Barkhorn died tragically after a car crash which also killed his wife in 1983. #history #ww2 #germany #vintage #pilots
