Osprey Aviation Pioneers 3 : German and Austrian Aviation of World War I : A Pictorial Chronicle of the Airmen and Aircraft that Forged German Airpower
Hugh Cowin outlines the technological advances represented by the different aircraft, and it comes as quite a shock to find out just how many German and Austrian aircraft types were developed during, and deployed in the Great War. This unique photohistory illustrates and analyses every single aircraft type including reconnaissance, trainer, bomber, and fighter aircraft of World War I. In addition to descriptions of each aircraft's development and deployment, there are rare photographs of the aircraft and portraits and brief biographies of key designers and pilots. Aces featured include Baron von Richthofen 'the Red Baron', Theodore Osterkamp with his Fokker EV, and Hermann Goering, a famous Ace who would feature even more prominently in a later conflict. Many of the pictures reproduced have never been seen in book form.
