Overview

Following their imaginative, popular and successful approach to identifying and describing all the airmen who were claimed by Manfred von Richthofen in Under the Guns of the Red Baron, and by Immelmann, Voss, Göring and Lothar von Richthofen in Under the Guns of the German Aces, air historians Franks and Giblin have put four more equally distinguished German aces of World War One under the microscope.

In doing so, they profile not only the aces themselves, all of whom received the 'Blue Max' - Germany's highest award for bravery in action - but also the Allied airmen they fought and downed. By extensive and exhaustive research into records, and carefully studying maps, timings and intelligence reports - contemporary and retrospective - as full a picture as possible is revealed with excellent photographic coverage of the many protagonists involved.

All four of the aces, Böhme, Müller, von Tutschek and Wolff were unit leaders at different times, one commanded a Jagdesgeschwader, the others commanded Jagdstaffels. All four were destined to die in actions against the Royal Flying Corps. Every one of their combats is detailed here, with colour artwork. This is the last in the 'Under the Guns' trilogy, to complete the set.
