Abstract:

In this document German Air Force Brigadier General Ret. Paul- Werner Hozzle, presents some of his experiences as a Stuka pilot and commander of Stuka units, in organizer of the Luftwaffe Air Fleet. As part of a program to evaluate the lethality of current airborne automatic cannon ammunition against threat armored vehicles, former Brigadier General Paul-Werner Hozzle, German Air Force, presented some of his experiences in combat in the Second World War. General Hozzel presented his ideas and recollections in a one-day seminar at the National War College to members of the alumni association and other distinguished guests. General Hozzel is one of a few remaining German officers who fought in the Second World War and held position high enough to allow generalizations about the war and to extract historical generals for future operations. As such, he represents a perishable source for the defense of the West, who along with a dwindling band of German officers in their 70s and 80s, can provide insights into the war from the opposing side and present experience and lessons of combat against the Soviets.
