Horrido! Figher Aces of the Luftwaffe, Constable, Trevor J.; Toliver, Raymond F.
5 Constable, Trevor J.; Toliver, Raymond F. Horrido! Figher Aces of the Luftwaffe
New York Macmillan 1968 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Book and dust in very good condition. Has former owners name neatly written in front. Dust now in mylar protective cover. Introduction by Lt. General Adolph Galland, General of the Fighter Arm, 1941-45. The Luftwaffe was the aerial warfare branch of the combined German Wehrmacht military forces during World War II. The Luftwaffe proved instrumental in the German victories across Poland and Western Europe in 1939 and 1940. During the Battle of Britain, however, despite inflicting severe damage to the RAF's infrastructure and, during the subsequent Blitz, devastating many British cities, the German air force failed to batter the beleaguered British into submission. (Wiki) Horrido is a hunting expression used in Germany. German hunters say “Horrido” and the crowd answers “Yo”. Horrido was also a German fighter pilots training manual. Published in June of 1944, this little book was a manual to teach fighter pilots how to correctly engage their target – how to gauge distances, when to shoot. As in the US, many of the little German military manuals of this time period also included funny cartoons to help soldiers better memorize their content. Scarce in this condition.; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 348 pages
