Middle one is Kurt Knispel... Germany's top scoring tank ace.

Yes the last one is the big three at Yalta

The first one is corregidor

The third one is Kurt Knispel, one of the biggest tank aces in history

You are missing the 2nd one

The second one is Vasily Zaiestsev(probbably botched the spelling).

He was a Soviet sniper with something like 400 confirmed kills.
The movie "Enemy at the Gates" is based on his story.

He still doesn't measure up to Simo Hayha(probably botched that too) a Finnish sniper with 505 confirmed kills,542 claimed,and 200 claimed SMG kills.

I know you can recognize the plane, but can you identify the pilot?

You are almost correct, but not quite. The answer lies on the webpage where you got that picture.

So close. It's Lt. White's plane but the pilot in the photo isn't Lt. White. A little googling will surely find the answer.

Since nobody guessed it, it is another of the Tuskegee Airmen, Capt. Edward Gleed. If you google creamers dream you will find photos identifying him.
