I Fought You from the Skies - Willi Heilmann Willi Heilmann was an experienced "Jagdflieger" (fighter pilot) who served with the Third Group of the 54th Fighter Wing (III/JG-54) in the West from the Spring of 1944 to the end of the war in May 1945. This is his story, full of hair-raising escapes from fierce dogfights over France and Germany. It shows the bravery, fear, and mounting fatigue of a group of German fighter pilots who did their utmost to try to maintain Germany's hold in the West, only to be gradually pushed back to the frontiers of the Reich and into the heart of Germany.

This book is also a commentary on the Luftwaffe's final attempt to regain air superiority prior to and in the aftermath of the Allied landings in Normandy.
