Hans-Joachim Marseille (13 December 1919 – 30 September 1942) was a Luftwaffe fighter pilot and flying ace during World War II. He is noted for his aerial battles during the North African Campaign: Marseille was one of the best fighter pilots of World War II and was nicknamed the "Star of Africa". 
Marseille was killed in a flying accident, when he was forced to abandon his fighter due to engine failure: after exiting the smoke-filled cockpit, Marseille's chest struck the vertical stabiliser of his aircraft, either killing him instantly, or incapacitating him so that he was unable to open his parachute.
He was only 22.
