"Jochen Marseille was tempered by a deep sense of chivalry, he was known to have notified the British that one of their pilots was down and wounded, after he scored the kill…he did not believe that a man should die on the ground…Marseille broke all the rules, and did so with a smile..he lived his life as if he was immortal" (Adolf Galland…general of fighters)


"When I met Marseille I found him very boyish and free spirited, but not completely immature… I have to admit, he was not shy at all about his lifestyles… he played his banned American jazz music so loudly that I was sure the British could hear it in Egypt" (Adolf Galland, general of the fighters)
