Nazi German aviators
Polte: Und wir sind doch geflogen!
Lufthansa 1 Million Kilometer Certificate
This is a very interesting book about the start of the German aviation industry written by Willi Polte, a World War I fighter pilot who went on to become a pioneer in the early days of what is now the national airline of Germany, Lufthansa. While the name Willi Polte is not well-known, the amazing fact is that by June 1932 he had already flown a million kilometers for Lufthansa and he could call himself a Luftmillionäre!

The title Und wir sind doch geflogen! roughly translates as "We Flew Against All Odds!". The foreword is by Generalfeldmarschall Erhard Milch who describes the difficult years in German aviation following World War I with the Treaty of Versailles sanctions against Germany and the decimation of its military. And, how with the help of pilots like Oberst Willi Polte, German aviation was slowly rebuilt and that with every flight aviators like Polte helped to re-establish Germany as a great National Socialist flying nation.
