Erik Hartmann not listed in news paper?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering, all the other german aces are listed, Galland, Bär, etc. but where is Hartmann? With 352 confirmed kills!? Or is it something "political".

Not at all. It is simply the case, that Hartmann started his career as a fighter pilot quite late. He only shot down his first aircraft in november 1942 and ended the year with just 2 kills to his name. He simply didn't rank up enough of a score to feature on the newspaper scoreboards within the timespan of BoM-BoS-BoK. 

 

He will no doubt appear in the newspapers of the BoBP career.

No, it is because in the career to date (Kuban is so far the latest episode) Hartmann had only just started scoring. 

 

edit: beaten to it by Finkeren again :)

That is easy. As you can see from the link below at the end of september 1943, when BoK ends, Hartmann had 117 kills. He was a "late start" so to speak and scored most of his kill-list in 1944.

Isn´t it Eric Hardman? I mean the fully anglicised version of Erich Hartmann.

Eric Hardman was just one Private Eye in a city full of lies, a city full of bright lights - that cast dark shadows. 

He should have known she'd be trouble the moment she knocked on his door.

 

She said she had a case for him.
