A German Luftwaffe fighter ace during World War II, Falck (1910-2007) took command of Nachtjagdgeeschwader 1, the first dedicated night fighter unit, in June 1940. NJG 1 developed into a highly effective force under Falck's leadership, which led to his appointment within the Luftwaffenbefehlshaber Mitte as overall responsible for the day and night defense of the Third Reich. This autobiography, based on taped conversations, interviews, and stories told over a period of several years provides unique insights into the formation and operations of the Luftwaffe's night fighter force, as well as the last desperate days of Nazi Germany.
