Abstract

The complexity of post-war masculinity is  the focus of Stefanie Schueler-Springorum's essay "Flying and Killing: Military Masculinity in German Pilot Literature, 1914-1939" in the edited volume Home/Front: The Military, War, and Gender in Twentieth Century Germany. Her analysis explored the melding of man and machine. The fascination among Germans with air warfare evolved over time from depictions of individual knights to an emphasis after 1933 on the pilot's national feeling and his integration into a German community.
