Josef "Pips" Priller (1915-1961) was a German World War II fighter ace. He became famous because of his single strafing pass attack over Sword Beach on D-Day, accompanied by his wingman, Heinz Wodarczyk. Contrary to popular belief, however, Priller and Wodarczyk were not the only Luftwaffe pilots to attack the beaches or the Allies on June 6, 1944. Priller was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords for his extreme bravery and success in aerial combat.
