Purple Aces - Robert J. Hogan

A pilot arrives, dying, and a strange purple stain spreads on his face, with an Ace of Spades.

Two other pilots, twins, exhibit bizarre behaviour changes.

When G-8 investigates, there is much dogfighting. The trail leads him to a castle in a dungeon, through a swamp, past a cemetery, no less, and he counters the perfidious influence of Herr Doktor Krueger, and a scientist named Zwantag.

Krueger had been using Zwantag's work on behaviour modification via his purple substance to look at making Allied pilots attack their own.
