German Aircraft of World War I: 1914-18

by Edward Ward, Ronny Bar
Organized chronologically by type, German Aircraft of World War I offers a highly illustrated guide to the main types of aircraft used by the German Air Force during World War I.
The book offers a comprehensive survey of German aircraft, from the Albatros B.1 and Fokker E.II of the early years to the more sophisticated Fokker D.VII and Junkers CL.1 of the final months of the war. All the major and many minor types are featured, including monoplanes, biplanes, single-seater fighters, two-seater fighters, bombers, ground-attack aircraft, night bombers, giant bombers, and floatplanes. This includes both well-known and lesser-known models, such as the LVG and Pfalz single-seater fighters, the Gotha and Zeppelin Staaken large bombers, AEG ground-attack aircraft, and the Albatross, Halberstadt, and Brandenburg two-seater biplanes. Each featured profile includes authentic markings and color schemes, while every separate model is accompanied by exhaustive specifications.
