This website is dedicated to Heinz Knoke. Franck has done a superb job in putting together this excellent website. The address is:

http://www.chez.com/franckruffino

The site is offered in both French and English. The English address is:

http://www.chez.com/franckruffino/My-Site/Main_Lilo.htm

The sections of this site are as follows:

Homage to Lilo - A very touching tribute by Knoke to his wife of many years, Lilo.

His Victories - Absolutely first-rate research by Franck into the details of each of Knoke's victories. Includes detailed information on each Allied plane and its crew. Text, tables, photos, sources. If the researcher wants an example of how to do it - this is it.

Knoke's Aircrafts - Includes numerous photos and color profiles of the planes he flew, as well as photos of others' planes. Photo of trainer and info on Schönwalde Military Academy along with maps. Info on each of his aircraft damaged or destroyed. Discussion on use of 109 with injection methanol.

Chronology - A chronology of Knoke's service in the Luftwaffe, giving dates, units, aircraft type flown, and airfield maps. This is not an accounting of combats.

Photo Album - Ten black and white photos emphasizing pilots, not aircraft.

Sources & Books - Beautifully presented with color cover renderings, Franck highlights his published reference sources. He also includes a brief listing of links, including the LWAG site.

About this Site - Franck explains why he chose to create this website.

In Memoriam - Lest we forget, Franck pays tribute to both the Nazi attrocities of the concentration camps. On the other hand, the bombed out cities of Germany gave fuel to the pilots that fought in her defense.

Credits and Thanks

Agreements of writing - Rather unique, Franck explains the use of 4 different colors in his text to highlight the source or reliability of his information. Other researchers should take note!

Last updates, News! - Typical help for those wanting to follow the updates to the site.

Richard
