Descripción del producto

Reseña del editor

The Albatros family of fighters were amongst the most effective aircraft employed by the Idlfieg (Imperial German Air Service) for much of World War 1, with the D.III and D.Va being flown by most of the 363 pilots who qualified as aces at some point in their often brief careers. The Albatros was the scourge of the RFC on the Western Front in 1916-17, with pilots of the calibre of von Richthofen, Boelke and Schleich cutting swathes through their opponents. Well over 4000 Albatros scouts were built between 1916 and 1918, and they were also extensively used by the Austro-Hungarians against Russian, Italian and British aircraft until war's end.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas More Tales of Albatros Aces! 12 de septiembre de 2007
Por Mike O'Connor - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
Albatros fighters made up the backbone of the German Air Service in World War I. Most, if not all of Germany's aces, flew some version of the sleek Albatros craft during their combat careers. The exploits of Albatros aces were so widespread that Osprey Publishing has produced a second volume on Albatros aces, this one authored by Greg VanWyngarden.

VanWyngarden's book differs from the earlier book, written by Norman Franks, in that he covers many of the lesser known Albatros aces not covered previously. Ernst Udet is probably the best known ace described along with the likes of Max Muller, Julius Buckler, Kurt Student, Theodor Rumpel, Kurt Schonfelder, Karl-Emil Schafer and others.

VanWyngarden is a gifted author, his text flowing smoothly. He includes several first-person accounts that help give a human flavor to those long-ago dogfights. The text is complimented by 100 black & white photographs, several plan views and 11 pages of color profiles by Harry Dempsey.

World War I enthusiasts will want to purchase this book. It compliments and supplements the earlier Franks book with more tales of intrepid aces flying one of the sleekest fighters of the Great War.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Must Have for Fighter Ace and WWI Fans 9 de agosto de 2007

The author is one of the top authorities on WWI German aces and his knowledge shows in this exceptional book, Osprey's second title on Albatros aces. Covering many of the less well-known aces, the text is well-written and highly informative. It puts the flight operations in context of the wider operational picture and has many quotes from the German aces themselves. There are a number of photos that have never been published before and many new color profiles by the excellent artist who has done all of Osprey's WWI color profiles. This book is a 'must' for anyone who enjoys Osprey's series on aces and for all enthusiasts of WWI aviation.
4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Albatros...flew for the enemy, but gave outstanding service as a fighting aircraft. 6 de abril de 2015
Por Stanley P Stein - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
Germany's stand-by fighter plane in WW1. Even as it aged, it served many German squadrons simply because Germany hadn't sufficient aircraft production of its later, more advanced planes. So, the Albatros stayed in service to the very end, with all of its teething problems which were never really remedied. Not until Germany brought the Fokker DVII into production did the elite German squadrons have a superior aircraft, but the Albatros was still flying to bulk up the strength of the German Air Force. Yet, Germany produced some very outstanding airmen.
5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas it would be nice to continue it 18 de julio de 2014

All of the books in this series are woth having, this one in particular. When Greg Vanwyngarden is involved in any way its a book you have to have. The color illustrations alone are worth the price of the book, especially if you're a modeller. In most books, including this one, the profiles illustrate the colors as they look when new. If you're doing a model check some photos and give it a used look with a little thinned light gray paint here and there. Lots of WW I aircraft have not been done in this series, it would be nice to continue it.
