An English translation of the official history of the German Air Force in the Great War. The first part of the book deals with the technical details of the German aircraft , Zeppelin airships and balloons, and the training of its personnel.The second half is an historical account of its wartime actions. There are chapters on day and night-time bombing, on anti-aircraft defences and on seaplanes, but the attention of most English-speaking readers will surely focus upon Part II, Chapter Five, which is devoted to the air war over the western front. Befittting an official history, throughout there is more emphasis on the air force as a whole than on the exploits of individual air aces. Illustrated with 36 black and white photographs.
