Here's a small part from the Dutch wikipedia article, information that's missing from the English article. It's a loose translation.
Dolfo Galland was regarded as a very chivalrous pilot, even by his enemies. When Görring gave the order to kill pilots that were shot down and hanging helplessly from their parachute, Galland refused saying: "I only destroy machines, it is not my intent to kill." Galland's refusal of the order caused many more Luftwaffe pilots to do the same.
From his autobiography:
"I consider myself an athlete playing a game with athletes from other countries. The purpose of the sport is to disable each other's plane. As with auto racing, sometimes fatal accidents occur."
"Politics have never interested me, I did not want to die for Germany or fight for Hitler. I just wanted to be the best. I happen to have been born in Germany, if I was born in England, I'd have fought against the Germans."
He died in 1996 of natural causes. He was given a military funeral attended by American, British and German soldiers. That's how much respect he met.

Fun Fact. Even though Rommel was part of Operation Valkyrie (the guys who tried to blow up Hitler and take over the government, but only blew his pants off) he was asked to commit suicide instead of being executed, because he was too much of a national hero for Hitler to kill.
