An autobiography by Wolfgang Falck, Father of the Luftwaffe Night Fighters, who found himself in the most unique position when German Luftwaffe high command decided to form a night fighter force.

Known affectionately by his men as the Father of the Night Fighters, he continues to wear this mantle, to this day. Falck provides the reader with a fascinating behind the scenes personal view of the life in the leadership of the German Luftwaffe; its successes, its operations and failures, the interrelationship of personalities involved and ultimately the end of WWII. Wolf brings the reader upfront and personal view of his experiences in the last desperate days, through his post war survival and happy retirement after working in the aerospace industry.
