Welcome to my website Fighters Aces of the World , during World War II the battle for air supremacy  became a crucial element in determining the outcome of the war. If used successfully, air power had the potential to hold up armies in the field  and weaken a nations war making capacity - gaining air supremacy was the task of the fighter. This website is dedicated to all  the fighter pilots who took part in World War II and especially the fighter Ace. This  site is designed to give brief descriptions  of each Ace, and you will find the likes of renowned fighter pilots such as Erich Hartmann (the worlds highest scoring Ace)Sailor Malan, Gunther Rall, Johnnie Johnson  Killer Caldwell, Gabby Gabreski Chuck Yeager, Pappy Boyington And many more.  What Makes An Ace?


Chuck Yeager's P51 -D Glamorous Glen III, He may heave scored his ME 262 and his five 109's in one day in this Mustang.



This extraordinary photo of Erich Hartmann the highest scoring Ace of all time, is seen wincing at a glass of warm champagne to celebrate his 300th victory. Erich Hartmann scored 352 victories a feat that will never be repeated, he is truly the Ace of all Aces.

Emil Lang holds the single day record for Arial victories, 18 shot down in one day. Emil was to shoot down 72 aircraft in just three weeks, shortly after notching up his 173rd kill he fell prey to Us Thunderbolts.

Stanislaw Skalski was the most successful Polish ace of WW II, with a record of 22 confirmed victories. Three times he was awarded the British DFC, and he received many other medals. Following his return to Poland after the war, he was imprisoned by the Communist regime in 1949, on a charge of espionage for the West. He spent 6 long years in a jail, waiting for execution. That was his "reward"  a fate he shared with many other Polish soldiers/Airmen  returning from the West for their heroic and sacrificing duty.
Hannes Trautloft Many historians consider Trautloft as one of the Luftwaffe's most effective leaders and should be mentioned in the same breath with Molders, Galland and Lutzow. Given command of his own Geschwader he took over command of the newly formed JG 54. Trautloft will always be associated with this unit because it was Trutloft that gave the  unit it's Geschwader insignia (identifying badge). Because he came from a region known as 'the green heart of Germany' he chose a green heart with a narrow white outline, after this JG54 was known as Green heart or Green Heart warriors.
