..". a fine little reference... This handy, compact volume offeres a wealth of information on all aspects of the Kaiser's aviation forces. Despite the short length, the coverage is excellent, including observation, recon, bomber, fighter, Zeppelin, balloon, flak, and supporting forces... Especially useful are typical tables of organization and equipment for Jastas, FFAs, Schlastas, and other units... this offering has about 50 [illustrations], mostly good to excellent quality. The detailed index is helpful, rounding out a truly worthwhile offering... four stars." -Barrett Tillman, "Aerodrome"
