Grundriss der Luftfahrtmedizin.

Leipzig: J. A. Barth, 1939.

Compendium of aerospace medicine during the Nazi regime. Ruff was director of the Aviation Medicine Department at the German Experimental Institute for Aviation. Though he was later indicted for war crimes, Ruff was not punished, and enjoyed a distinguished medical career in postwar Germany.
After World War II Strughold became a U.S. citizen through Project Paperclip and became a prominent researcher in aerospace medicine in the U.S. Such was the reputation of both authors that this work underwent a third, revised edition as late as 1957-- highly unusual for a publication that originated in a Nazi research center.
In the U.S. a prestigious award was named in Strughold's honor; however, after his death Strughold's association with Nazi torture experiments became known, and the Strughold award was "retired" by the Space Medicine Association in 2013.
