Early German Aces of World War I, Paperback / softback Book

Early German Aces of World War I Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Harry Dempsey

Part of the Aircraft of the Aces series

Description

The Fokker Eindeckers were the world's first true fighter aircraft, and their use had an impact on Allied morale and tactics far beyond their actual success.

The first German aces who flew these aircraft, particularly Immelmann and Boelcke, became household words in Germany and in Allied countries alike.

This volume charts the history of the Early German Aces in World War I, from development of the Fokker Eindeker and its early successes in late 1915 and early 1916, to the decline of the Fokker's superiority and the resurgence of Allied fighter aviation.
