Udet and a deal with the devil

Post by Marcus » 25 Aug 2003 20:36

I was flipping through the channels a few days ago while waiting for a movie to start and came across a documentary dealing with Ernst Udet. It mentioned a quote from him saying something to the effect that "if you want to be a great flier, you have to make a deal with the devil". Has anyone got the correct quote? Preferably both in German and English.

Thanks.

Here's the quote Marcus, almost atleast, will you add it to the site?
s. 279 aus "Hitlers Krieger" wrote:Um der Fliegerei Willen mußte Udet auch "mit dem Teufel paktieren"

At the moment it is just personal interest.
