Osprey Aircraft of the Aces 77 : Albatros Aces of World War 1 (2)

From September 1916 until late 1918, biplanes from the Albatros firm formed the primary equipment of Germany's fighter forces. Starting with the D I of 1916, these aircraft underwent a continuous programme of development and production to the D Va of late 1917. Albatros fighters reached their zenith of deadly efficiency in the spring of 1917, when the Albatros D III took a heavy toll of Allied aircraft. Nearly every one of the 81 Jagdstaffeln (fighter squadrons) operated one or more types of highly decorated Albatros aircraft at some point in their history. This book is a follow-up to Osprey Aircraft of the Aces 32 World War 1 : Albatros Aces, and provides a look at the design and production of the Albatros series. It also details the careers of some of the war's best known and lesser known aces. The exploits of such luminaries as Ernst Udet, Max Müller, Karl-Emil Schäfer and Julius Buckler are recounted through their own first hand accounts, rare archival photography and superb colour artwork. Text by Greg Van Wyngarden with illustrations by Harry Dempsey.
