The Life of Otto Kittel


Otto Kittel was one of the highest-scoring fighter aces of the Second World War, yet he was not flamboyant or fond of publicity. Instead, he was a country boy who loved flying, and proved very adept at the controls of a Messerschmitt 109 or Focke-Wulf 190, claiming 267 aerial victories during the war. Evgeny Velichko has written an excellent 25-page biographical eArticle about Otto Kittel, which tells his complete life story, from combat debut in 1941 to his death in February 1945. The article features 26 photographs, three maps, three colour profiles, and victory and loss lists as appendices.
