Overview

"Heaton expertly portrays Marseille as one of history's great fighter pilots, as well as a man who lived life to the full and who fought with honor." Dennis Showalter

The Star of Africais a biography of the dramatic life and meteoric career of German Luftwaffe Captain Hans-Joachim Marseille, the "Star of Africa. Marseille, a legendary figure in the annals of military history, had 158 kills to his name and was one of the rare recipients of the Knight s Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords, and Diamonds, the Third Reich s highest honor awarded for valor in combat.
