      Here Is the Shocking Story of Nazi Germany's Greatest Fighter Ace. Erich Hartmann amassed a remarkable tally of aerial victories during World War II. A fighter ace is a pilot who gains five kills against enemy pilots. The most well-known and popular aces tend to come from major world powers like Germany or the United States. But smaller countries have their fair share of heroic pilots that fought for what they believed in, too.

      Fighter Aces provides a brief history of airplane usage from pre-World War I through the Iran–Iraq War. The book includes one story of three all-female Soviet aviation regiments, who the Germans loathed and feared. The most famous of these was the th Night Bomber Regiment, known as the “Night Witches.”. Below the top 30 fighter aces of WWII, so you get an idea of the German scores. The most remarkable Fighter Aces. However, we try to create the list of most remarkable fighter aces not solely based on kills, but also on fame, influence, and value the factor that it matters at what time one was active (WWI vs WWII). 1.
