KNIGHT OF THE REICH
by Robert Taylor
- A TRIBUTE TO GÜNTHER RALL -
On the morning of 15 October 1943, as Bf109G's from III./JG52 dive into attack a group of Russian fighters high over Zaporozhye in south-east Ukraine, their Kommandeur Hauptmann Günther Rall pounces on a Soviet La-5 to claim his 222nd victory.
During this astonishing one month period Rall shot down 40 aircraft and
at the end of November 1943 acheived 250 victories - at the time only
the second Ace to do so after Walter Nowotny. By the time he was posted
back to the West, he was well on the way to his final score of 275 victories,
making him the third highest-scoring Ace in history. Had he not been wounded
in action numerous times and forced to spend months in hospital, he might
well have been the highest-scoring Ace of them all.
