He is also noted as being Erich Hartmann’s, histories leading fighter ace, early mentor.

Unteroffizier “Paule” Roßmann was transferred to 7./JG 52 on 1 March 1940 and participated in the Battle of France and Battle of Britain. He was credited with six aerial victories in the western theatre before JG 52 was deployed to Operation Barbarossa.
