This man survived the war and died peacefully in 1996, aged 86. It just crossed my mind that he was a skilled killer pilot who worked for the same nazi regime as some others who were hanged for killing far fewer people.
This may be radical thinking on my part until you consider his victims, many of whom were innocent young men with far too few flying hours and some with no combat experience whatsoever. That is the sad fact of the matter and it is only to be hoped that their memorials are not torn down by some of the scum that prowl around in our streets today.
