Pfalz – Fighter Aircraft from Rheinland the Wine Country
Tomasz J. Kowalski

Legends of Aviation 7 cover

Fighters made in a Bavarian GmbH Flugzeugwerke factory were the third most common type of fighter aircraft used by the Imperial Army Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte). Although having elegant lines, they turned out to be inferior not only to Albatros D.V and D.Va or Fokker D.VII but also to most allied fighters sent into action in 1917. They were just a workhorse of the Luftstreitkräfte fulfilling the permanent shortage of combat-ready fighters. They were definitely a deadly weapon in the hands of experienced German and Bavarian Jastas pilots.

Size: 205 x 275 mm, 72 pages including 73 photos, 11 pages of archive drawings and 4-view colour profiles of 5 aircraft painted by Ronny Bar.
