Three victories in Spain. His first known Soviet victory, an I-153 on 25 August, 1941. A 2nd, a Pe-2 on 11 September, 1941. Four victories on 4 October, 1941; two I-18s and two DB-3s. After rotating home from Russia, he was assigned to instructor duty but volunteered for combat in Libya, where he downed a Spitfire on 4 August, 1942. On 10 August, 1942, he claimed two P-40s over El Alamein. Franz Stigler served as his wingman in Libya prior to his suicide 19 August, 1942, believed to be caused by the dishonor of false victory claims by some comrades, and his victories potentially being stripped and the possibility of being court martialed. He dove into the sea and his body washed ashore north of Quotaifiya, rather tha seeing his victories and honor being wrongly stripped. His victories may be as high as 30 as of 14 August, 1942, 18 on the Eastern Front and two ships (per Franz Stigler).
