As I had nothing with which to fight back (the armament had been removed from the Messerschmitt to save weight), I aimed the combination in the direction of a collection of landing craft and ships near the shore and released the Ju 88. The automatic pilot did not hold the aircraft on one engine, however, and it dived into the sea. Rudat's story is confirmed in the combat report of an RAF Mosquito on patrol near the beach-head that evening.
I am proud to have been numbered amongst the Sturmgruppe pilots. If the conditions were ever repeated, I would do the same thing again. In general, the American countermeasures were successful, as is borne out by the disconcertingly gloomy figures that appeared in a Luftwaffe staff paper written on the daylight air defence operations by Luftflotte Reich during August 1944. In the course of 22 major attacks on targets in Germany, the defenders claimed to have shot down 307 US bombers - an average of fourteen bombers during each incursion.
The total Luftwaffe effort during the daylight hours amounted to about a hundred sorties, mostly by fighters and fighter-reconnaissance aircraft. No Me 262 operated over the beaches in the fighter or any other role, for its jet engine was still not ready for mass production. The influx of combat units to airfields in the area of the invasion, planned so assiduously beforehand, had little effect during the critical initial phase of the landings. III. Gruppe Schlachtgeschwader 4, a ground-attack unit with some fifty Focke Wulf Fw 190Fs at Clastres near St-Quentin, and at Le Luc and Frieres in the south of France, was one of the units now pitch forked into the battle and its experiences were more or less typical of those enjoyed by units moving forwards.
