|German Aces of World War I |
The Pictorial Record.
Franks & VanWyngarden. The images of airmen such as Manfred von Richthofen and Ernst Udet are well known, but the same cannot be said for over 300 other German airmen who achieved five or more WWI aerial victories. Starting with the "Red Baron" with 80 victories and proceeding down to those with five claims, this book presents images of the aces in "score" order and includes a brief service history and an aircraft illustration for each. 192 pages, 320 B&W photographs, 8½"x 11", hardcover.
Airfields & Airmen
Visit the most legendary sector of the British effort in World War I, the Somme. From 1916 to 1918 the British and German armies were locked in a deadly struggle here, while the Royal Flying Corps and the Imperial German Air Service flew overhead. Initially acting as scouts and artillery spotters, the ever more sophisticated aircraft became instruments of war themselves, engaging in deadly conflict far above the deadlocked armies below. Includes maps and then-and-now illustrations to cover all the airfields, crash sites and areas associated with the units, battles and individual aces of the aerial conflict of World War I. Coverage also includes French actions, and a few American units that served in the region near the end of the war. 160 pgs., illus., 5½"x 8½", sfbd.
