AIRCRAFT OF WORLD WAR I 1914–1918: The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide

Illustrated with detailed artworks of combat aircraft and their markings, this is a comprehensive study of the aircraft that fought in the Great War of 1914–18. Arranged chronologically by theatre of war and campaign, The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide: Aircraft of WWI offers a complete organizational breakdown of the units on all the fronts, including the Eastern and Italian Fronts. Each campaign includes a compact history of the role and impact of aircraft on the course of the conflict, as well as orders of battle, lists of commanders and campaign aces such as Manfred von Richtofen, Eddie Rickenbacker, Albert Ball and many more.

Every type of aircraft is featured, including the numerous variations and types of well-known models, such as the Fokker Dr.I, the Sopwith Camel and the SPAD SVII, through to lesser-known aircraft, such as the Rumpler C.1, and the Armstrong Whitworth FK8. Each aircraft profile is accompanied by exhaustive specifications, as well as details of individual and unit markings.

Packed with more than 200 colour profiles of every major type of combat aircraft from the era, The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide: Aircraft of WWI is an essential reference guide for modellers, military historians and aircraft enthusiasts.
