Sopwith Camel vs Fokker Dr I : Western Front 1917-18, Paperback / softback Book

Sopwith Camel vs Fokker Dr I : Western Front 1917-18 Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Harry Dempsey

Part of the Duel series


Amid the continuous struggle for aerial superiority during World War 1, two aircraft types were at the forefront.

Both rotary-engined fighters, the Sopwith Camel and the Fokker Dr I triplane were relatively slow for their time, but were regarded as the most maneuverable machines produced during the conflict, and the classic pair for a tight, evenly matched dogfight at close quarters.

In this book Jon Guttman examines the fascinating story of the design and development of these deadly foes.

First-hand accounts and innovative cockpit-view artwork give a thrilling insight into the pilots' experiences during the world's first aerial duels and explain their successes and failures.
