OFC it depends a lot of the tools you need to use. Germans (and Finns too) generally thought that if you ended up in dogfight, that was a tactical error.
Japanese tried to bind the opponents in dogfight and fought one-by-one. The main fault of Allied AF tactics in Pacific was to try to fight the Japanese in their own terms. It took a while to learn.
This account with SBD / Zero was new for me (even I have read my fair share of Pacific Air War too), interesting!
Similar kind of "dogfight" happened in 1944, when German night fighter ace Hans-Joachim Jabs was having a test flight in daylight with his Bf110G night fighter (with radar and all) and was caught by a flight of 6 Spitfire IXB's from 132 Squadron, led by Geoffrey Page (15 victory ace). Jabs managed to shoot down 2 of the Spitfires and land the Bf110 (before it was destroyed by strafing).
