Pop history glorifies air combat ever since the press romanticized the fighter pilots of WWI as knights in the sky. In reality, air combat in WWII was a grim business where four men died for every one wounded, flipping the rate of infantry casualties. If you flew combat in WWII, it was a Verdun in the sky.
