Summary

Rogue Aceis a biography of the dramatic life and meteoric career of German Luftwaffe Captain Hans-Joachim Marseille, known to Germans and Allies alike during World War II as "The Star of Africa." Marseille, a legendary figure in the annals of military history, had over 100 kills to his name and was one of the rare recipients of the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords, and Diamonds, the Third Reich's highest honor awarded for valor in combat. Unlike other German fighter aces, Marseille is also a famous figure in the public imagination in the United States and other English-speaking countries, where his rebellious nature, iconoclastic behavior, and early death have nourished his reputation just as greatly as his exceptional skill and chivalrous conduct as an adversary.
