The Star of Africa a biography of Hans Marseille who I like to think of as the James Dean of German Luftwaffe pilots is an excellent profile of one of the most iconoclastic Germans who fought in WWII Marseille was larger than life he loved women flying and drinking had a South African servant who served with him in the North Africa and was a talented musician who loved jazz and dared to play Scott Joplin in front of Hitler at an official state function much to Der Fuehrer s horror this scene is one of the best passages in the book Besides being in love with life Marseille was an exceptional pilot whose talent alone made him bearable to his superiors who generally hated him They were however in awe of his awesome flying skills as was every German Ace and all considered him to be the best pilot Germany ever produced In brief Marseille was a genius in the air mortal and fun on the ground and someone worth spending time with This is a great story of an extraordinary person

I read a few notes in other works about Hans Marseille but never looked deeper until I found the book on the site Book LemurWhat a great story This man was anything but the typical Nazi He was a drinker womanizer jazz listener military protocol rule breaker and an anti party pilot If it weren t for his father sympathetic superiors and his excellent pilot skills it s no doubt he would have been court martialed and shot or sent to Buchenwald He was the antithesis of everything Germany stood for ideologicallyIn his early years as pilot he was nothing than rogue He didn t communicate with his copilots or wingman on what his intentions would be during combat He took off engaged the enemy with no regard for his mates Many of them complained and refused to fly with him fearing for their own lives Yet they could not deny his prowess in the air No one in the Luftwaffe could make an ME 109 dance and maneuver the way he could It was in Africa under the tutelage of Oberleutnant Gerhard Holmuth he finally started finding his groove Rather than constantly reprimand him for his indiscretions and lack of discipline he became the father figure Hans never had He became aware that combat flying wasn t a one man show It was a concerted effort of his gruppen and schwarm This isn t to say he still didn t pull pranks on his mates or continue his defiance of authority figures He was invited to Berlin by Hitler to receive his Knight s Cross During the reception he showed his pianist skills for all the top Nazi brass After several excellent classical pieces he started pounding out jazz By the end of the recital the room was empty In another instance he commented about Goring wearing nail polish and insinuated he could have a gender issue Any of these acts would have spelled the doom of an ordinary man not Hans The last item I want to point his respect and chivalrous behavior to his opponents He was a firm believer that if at all possible the families of downed pilots especially the mothers should know the fate of their sons Several times he would fly over British airfields dropping off notes concerning a pilot who didn t return from a mission Despite his charm and excellent flying skills there was one threat he couldn t combat mechanical failure On September 30 1942 he would take to the sky for the last time His final tally would be 158 enemy kills There are some minor punctuation and formatting issues They do not detract from the storyHighly recommend this story Five Stars
