Excellent little book about virtually all aircraft that flew in WWI. The illustrations of the planes are detailed right down to not only squadron/staffel markings, but also the pilots' own personal plane markings. There are detailed notes about the performance/specs of each plane as well. If you're a modeler or WWI air combat buff, this is a must have.

Pretty good for an overview. I don't have any way of checking the accuracy of the information, but I suspect some of the performance numbers may be incorrect. (For example, of the Handley-Page O/400 is an improved version of the O/100, why are the specifications virtually identical?)

My only real complaint is that all of the illustrations are profile only, with no top or bottom views. Bob Pearson is co-author.

For a book whose major appeal is pretty pictures, this is a remarkably good book. It gives a very good, very concise description of the "big picture" of WW1 air combat. It has chapters covering the all the major fronts, plus minor ones like the Middle East. Highly recommended.
