- The German Luftwaffe always fought without any reserves. This is also the reason why we have pilots with extremely high numbers of victories.
- If we would have had the 262 at our disposal - even with all the delays - if we could have had in '44, ah, let's say three hundred operational, that day we could have stopped the American daytime bombing offensive, that's for sure.
- We have many, many pilots which have been wounded twelve or fifteen times during the war, but we had to use them. They were constantly in combat.
- I had to inspect all fighter units in Russia, Africa, Sicily, France, and Norway. I had to be everywhere.
