Long DescriptionIllustrated with detailed artworks of combat aircraft and their markings, 'The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide: Aircraft of WWI' is a comprehensive study of the aircraft that fought in the Great War of 1914–18. Arranged chronologically by theater of war and campaign, this book 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 Amstrong Whitworth FK8. Each aircraft profile is accompanied by exhaustive specifications, as well as details of individual and unit markings. Packed with more than 200 color 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 modelers, military historians and aircraft enthusiasts. REVIEWS "…a comprehensive study of the aircraft that fought in the Great War…" Model Retailer, 06/2010 ‘…a lavishly illustrated guide which covers just about everything essential about World War I aircraft from the familiar to the obscure…” Stand To! Journal of the Western Front Association, 08/2010 “ …provides more than 250 exceptionally well printed and detailed color views that capture the spirit of the aircraft far better than the usual line drawings. Military modelers and aviation buffs alike will benefit from Pearson’s attention to unit and other markings….wealth of information…” Over the Front, 10/2010 Part of this publisher’s The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide series this is a handy book, especially at the introductory level. Books that are small―in size and hence, ideally, as here, in price―are the hardest to get right because every word has to count and everything they declare worthy of inclusion has to be justifiable. On that score the reader is in exceedingly competent hands because both authors are known quantities in the WWI aviation world. In fact, Herris, a former Navy aviator, has since gone on to start his own publishing house that in its few years of existence has built an extraordinarily strong catalog of titles.... an excellent stepping stone into a complex and interesting subject that has been neglected for very long.
