The RAF never met with most of the best aces because they worked their asses off in the East!
Nicht wahr. Out of top five German aces of WWII, two had joined the Luftwaffe in time for Battle of Britain (Barkhorn, Rall). Neither had any kills in the battle, one was shot down. Other top German aces (Hartmann, Kittel, Nowotny) didn't start flying until Barbarossa, and were not yet active in Battle of Britain.
Top Five German Aces of WWII
1. Erich Hartmann, 352 kills. Joined Luftwaffe in 1942, never got chance to fight in Britain.
2. Gerhard Barkhorn, 301 kills. No kills in Battle of Britain, was shot down. First kill over Eastern front.
3. Günther Rall, 275 kills. Flew bomber escort in Battle of Britain, no kills. First kill in battle of France.
4. Otto Kittel, 267 kills, first assigned in February 1941, never got chance to fight in Britain.
5. Walter Nowotny, 258 kills, first assigned in February 1941, never got chance to fight in Britain.
German aces were most decidedly not working in the East during Battle of Britain, as I said before, eight months separated Luftschlacht um England and Fall Barbarossa.
Based on experiences of the two top aces who were active in Britain, seems like they had an easier time shooting down Sturmoviks than Spitfires!
