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

Description

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.
