by Guttman, Jon;

Osprey Pub Co, 2008. New book, 80 pages, DUE07. Amid the continuous struggle for aerial superiority during World War 1, two aircraft types were at the forefront. Both rotary-engined fighters, the Sopwith Camel and the Fokker Dr I triplane were relatively slow for their time, but were regarded as the most maneuverable machines produced during the conflict, and the classic pair for a tight, evenly matched dogfight at close quarters. In this book Jon Guttman examines the fascinating story of the design and development of these deadly foes. First-hand accounts and innovative cockpit-view artwork give a thrilling insight into the pilots' experiences during the world's first aerial duels and explain their successes and failures. . Soft Cover. As New. Illus. by Laurier, Jim; Dempsey, Harry. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
