Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Like other books in this series, the author has a look at the build up of the AH air force as well as the aircraft they used. In any war, the number of units grew as the need required and the same here. The author has devoted several pages to showing the increasing order of battle in this regard that includes the planes they flew. As this book is on Albatros aces, those successes gained by pilots flying other types are not fully covered. However, their missions flying the Albatros are. In addition to the usual 'there I was' tales, there are a goodly number of period photographs of these planes. I have to say that seeing something different like this is a real delight. As is the norm with Osprey books, there are several pages of full color profiles as well as a deeper explanation of these images in the appendices in the back of the book. It all makes for a very interesting read, especially if you are looking for something a bit different from the norm. It is well written and tells the tales well. It was a book I very much enjoyed reading and can highly recommend it to you."
--Scott Van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (February 2013)

“…a recommendation for military and aviation history collections alike … provides a fine survey of the Austro-Hungarian industry as a whole and the pilots who flew the Albatros fighters during World War I. Vintage black and white photos accompany color illustrations throughout during the course of a discussion that pinpoints the achievements and challenges of these fighter pilots and their planes. A fine in-depth pick for World War 1 collections.”
- The Midwest Book Review (March 2013)
