Luftwaffe pilot accounts in cold weather

Postby Lexxx » Mon Mar 28, 2005 3:19 pm

Does anyone know of any published or web-based accounts of Luftwaffe pilots in cold weather? I am particularly interested in problems experienced by Ju-52 pilots during the Stalingrad and Demyansk airlifts. Joel Haywood's "Stopped at Stalingrad" is a great operational overview, but the book does not really examine the particular problems posed by cold in very great detail.

Most of the published first-person accounts I have read, with the exception of Rudel, deal with fighter pilots. Are there any others published in English that I am not aware of?

All help is sincerely appreciated.

Well there's Peter Stahl book-Diving Eagle.I've read the Finnish translation of original Kampfflieger Zwischen Eismeer und Sahara.The Finnish translation is without Battle of Britain and North Africa chapters.

Stahl flew the JU-88 in Norway,North Finland and in Russia.

And there is Konrad Knabe Das Auge Dietls but its only in Germany and Finnish.
