[edit] Information

Hans-Joachim Marseille was one of the most successful fighter pilots of all time. Despite being shot down a number of times in his early career as a fighter pilot, he made his name in the African campaigns where he became known as 'The Star of Africa'. A mere 22 years old, he developed a unique fighting style which few could emulate. This, together with his spirit of comradeship and humane nature, led to his becoming a role model for his generation. He fulfilled his duty in the best sense of military tradition until, still undefeated, he met his death after developing engine trouble flying over the El Alamein front. In this film his former Commanding Officer, Major Edu Neumann, and some of his former fellow pilots, speak about their experiences with Hans-Joachim Marseille. Unique, hitherto unpublished film footage, and memorable reports from eye witnesses, combine to complete a comprehensive portrait of a man who entered the pages of history and who will always be remembered. Written & Directed by Karl-Heinz Geiger ; AV-Medienproduktion Germany 1990 ; English Edition by The Little Big Picture Company 1997
