Synopsis of German Jets Versus the US Army Air Force:

Through first-hand interviews with German and American pilots and analysis of air combat reports, Hess addresses this critical period as he recounts the new jets strengths and weaknesses, Allied counter tactics, German blunders, and stories of the first-ever prop versus jet air combat. Includes coverage of Adolf Gallands jet units, the Me 163 and 262, and the Arado 234.

William Hess is the official historian for the American Fighter Aces Association, and is one of the most highly respected aviation writers of his generation. A B-17 crewman during World War 2.
