Walther Dahl joined the German Army in 1935 before transferring to the Luftwaffe. Dahl claimed his first victory on June 22, 1941 during the German offensive against Russia and, after a period with II Gruppe, joined 4 Staffel JG 3 in December. He accompanied the unit when it deployed to the Mediterranean Theatre.

Dahl was promoted to Staffelkapitan in April 1942 and in August he returned to the eastern front where he was appointed Geschwaderadjutant JG 3. In December he was awarded the German Cross in Gold. On July 20, 1943, Dahl was made Gruppenkommandeur of III/JG3 and relocated to Munster in Germany to defend against allied bombing raids. Dahl was awarded the Knight’s Cross in March 1944 after recording 67 victories.

He became Kommodore of JG zbv before taking command of JG 300 on June 27, 1944. Having been promoted to Oberst, Dahl was awarded the Oak Leaves in February 1945. Dahl ended the war with 128 victories (including a B-17 by ramming!).

The Focke-Wulf FW 190 was a German single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Luftwaffe during World War II. First flown on June 1, 1939, the Fw 190 proved to be suitable for a wide variety of roles including air superiority fighter, ground-attack aircraft and operated with less success as a night fighter. Between 1941 and 1945, over 20,000 Fw 190s were built.
