Book Description

20 Mar 2014 Air Vanguard (Book 13)
In 1916 German aerial domination, once held sway by rotary-engined Fokker and Pfalz E-type wing-warping monoplanes, had been lost to the more nimble French Nieuports and British DH 2s which not only out-flew the German fighters but were present in greater numbers. Born-from-experience calls from German fighter pilots requested that, rather than compete with the maneuverability of these adversaries, new single-engine machines should be equipped with higher horsepower engines and armed with two rather than the then-standard single machine gun. The Robert Thelen-led Albatros design bureau set to work on what became the Albatros D.I and D.II and by April 1916, they had developed a sleek yet rugged machine that featured the usual Albatros semi-monocoque wooden construction and employed a 160hp Mercedes D.III engine with power enough to equip the aeroplane with two forward-firing machine guns. In all, 500 D.IIIs and 840 D.III(OAW)s were produced and saw heavy service throughout 1917.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb summary 19 Mar 2014
By Rai Skrupskis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a beautifully illustrated brief account of the technical and operational history of the Albatros DIII. It's amazing how much detailed information is included in its 64 pages and the author should be commended for his ability to describe the convoluted story of external differences among the 3 manufacturers. Scrap views are a great help here. The illustrations and color profiles are superb and augment the text extremely well. First hand accounts by its pilots and opponents really give you a feel for this aircraft. Essential guide for the historian and modeler.
