There is a rogue group of copyright infringers who have stolen a much earlier version of my data - from at least 10 years ago - and have the affrontery to publish that, along with using my name, on their poorly researched website. They claim this is the 'original' Kracker Archive, a ridiculous claim since my Archive has been in a state of continuous development for over 30 years and nobody - NOBODY - has the original. They have no right to use my name or my data and readers who come across this nonsense should do nothing to encourage theft of this nature. I am outraged by this blatant theft and misrepresentation of my lifetime's work. The ONLY person I have ever authorized to publish my data and use my name is Kelvin Youngs, who earned my trust and respect many years ago and is authorized by me to publish my work on whichever website he organizes, currently this being its present home at the highly respected Aircrew Remembered.

(Added by Pietrzak Youngs)
Born January 1, 1921 in Lajoskomárom. Very young he is interested in aviation and after finishing his studies he joined the Air Force in 1939 and did his classes in Kassa. He obtained his ranks of Sub-Lieutenant on June 18, 1942 and was assigned to 5 / I Squadron 5/5 Squadron. with which he joined the Eastern Front in December of the same year. During the winter, the missions consist mainly of ground attacks and it is only from the spring and summer of 1943, with the Battle of Kursk, that he can begin to garner victories. In the spring, he is based in Uman and flies on Me 109F4 / B. He reached Ace status on August 6, 1943 and won another victory on the 8 by attacking 20 yak 1 with his wingman who shot 2 on his side. During the fight his own plane is hit by the DCA and he has to make a forced landing in Varvasovka. On September 15, 1943, he shot a Yak 9 in a spinning fight as he waited for the 111 He had to escort. After his victory, he himself is touched and has to land on his stomach again. Killed 15 km behind the lines, he manages to regain his base after 2 days of walking through the woods and swimming across the frozen Dnieper. Unfortunately, for lack of witness, the victory will remain unconfirmed. During the winter of 1943/44, still on the Eastern front in the Squadron 5/2, he continues to increase his record, winning his 11th victory on January 5, 1944, the 12th and 13th ( Il2 and La 5) on January 11, then a Yak 1 on the 25th and a La 5 on January 27th. In the month of January 1944 alone, he made 28 sorties, including 25 patrols and engaged the fight 11 times for 6 victories obtained. During this period, he again made a forced landing in German territory. On 1 February, while escorting a Ju 52 to supply the Khorsun-Shevchenkovsk sector, he shot down a La 5 before being hit by another Russian pilot of 5 Gu IAP. After opening his canopy, he realizes that he can not jump and must land in Russian territory. He is then rescued by his winger, Sub Lieutenant Miklos Kenyeres, who lands next to the wreckage of his plane and retrieves it under the nose of the Russian soldiers advancing towards him. Two days later, the roles are reversed and it is Kenyeres who is shot down by the Soviet D.C.A. Unfortunately the nature of the terrain over which the pilot jumps does not allow Debrody to land and he is taken prisoner. February 16, 1944, he won his 17th and 18th wins and became the best As Hungarian of the moment. With the start of the US offensive on Hungary, he was posted to the 101/3 Squadron "Puma" in May 1944 in Veszprem with 18 victories and 173 war missions to his credit. He won his first victory on June 14, 1944 by defeating a P38J piloted by Lieutenant Louis Benne of the 14 Fighter Group, an ace with 5 victories who is taken prisoner after giving up his device. Two days later, he shot another P38J over Lake Balaton, attacking with 27 other "Pumas" a formation of 659 bombers and 290 escort fighters. The American aircraft was flown by Lieutenant George F Loughmiller who was killed. On July 2, 18 "Pumas" and 80 German fighters intercept an American training attacking Budapest. During the fight, Debrody claimed the destruction of a P-51D over Pilisvörösvár. The aircraft was flown by Lieutenant George Stanford, second in command of the 335th FS / 4th FG who won 4 and was taken prisoner. Five days later, he fired a B-17G (2nd BG, 20BS, W. Nr. 42-97351) from Megyercs, in collaboration with Aspirant András Huszár. After several unsuccessful missions, he returned with success on July 27 by shooting a B-24 on the side of Mór. B-24 belonged to the 455th BG. With the arrival of Soviet troops at the country's borders, the air force is again mobilized against the Red Army. On November 1, he was named Lieutenant and on the 4th he took command of Squadron 101/3 after the death of Lieutenant Bejczy. On November 16, 1944, Debrody took off for what would be his last war mission. The 101/3 attacks a formation of the 5 Southeast of Jászberény (5th Soviet Air Army) and Debrody defeats a Lavochkin. Later, he embarked on a frontal attack with a Yak 9 north of Nagykáta. His shots reach the exploding Yak but he himself is hit in the stomach by a shrapnel of 20 mm shells. Despite the seriousness of his injuries, he manages to land in catastrophe on the side of Hatvan and thanks to a fast surgical treatment, he manages to come out alive of this 203rd and last mission of war. He will later receive the Gold Medal of Bravery, one of Hungary's highest honors (Tiszti Arany Vitézségi Érem). When the war ends, he is recovering. After the war he emigrated to Spain with his friend Miklós Kenyeres, then later to Canada, and finally to the USA. In 1967 he was again operated on and the surgeon removed a 12.7 mm bullet that had lodged near the spine, a memory of his last fight. Gyorgy Debrody died on February 2, 1982 in Cortland, USA.
