Air Combat Analysis on the Eastern Front in 1944-45 – Daniel Horvath

We did separate the conference in the afternoon and had two presentations given in another conference room. The first one was on Midway and the Aleutians. We did not record that. The second one was a virtual presentation, so we recorded that. It is here: (10) Air Combat Analysis on the Eastern Front in 1944 45: Horvath – YouTube

  1. It is interesting how detailed the Soviet records are: down to the serial numbers of the planes available, their arnament, and exact status.

    He didn’t really get into it, but I suspect some of this stems from the rather quiet (to the general public) realization in some quarters that some of the German gods fighter claims are not actual numbers, and in some cases highly suspect as to the intent of the claim. Granted, in reading reading granular accounts of the Pacific War, I am not sure you are going to find much more out of sync claims. It wasn’t just a German issue.
