WWII German fighter ace discovers he killed his favorite author

How sad and ironic. Antoine de Saint-Exupery, beloved author of The Little Prince, was shot down and killed by a German fighter pilot during WWII. That German pilot's favorite author at the time was Saint-Exupery. The pilot just found out recently that he killed Saint-Exupery. What must it be like to discover that you killed someone you admire? How sad.

This, of course, just brings home the devastation and suffering that all killing produces.
