This list of World War I flying aces from Austria-Hungary contains the names of aviators from the countries ruled by the Habsburg dynasty. Austria-Hungary was a constitutional union of the Austrian Empire (Cisleithania) and the Kingdom of Hungary (Transleithania) which existed from 1867 to 1918, when it collapsed as a result of defeat in World War I. Its territory contained a melange of nationalities. Although the aces of the .

Austro-Hungarian Aces of World War 1. Chris Chant . According to Austro-Hungarian Army Aircraft of World War One, by Peter Grosz, George Haddow and Peter Schiemer, Oberst Emil Uzelac, commander of the LFT, was pleased to be able to inform his staff that ‘The Fokker fighter is outdated, therefore I have authorised the production of a light biplane fighter that is equal to all combat requirements’. The nose of the Albatros fighter could house two Schwarzlose machine guns (the standard weapon of the Austro-Hungarian Army), which was able to fire its 8 mm bullets at 572 m/sec at a rate of 350-430 rounds per minute.

Austro-Hungarian industry produced a series of poor fighter types such as the Phönix D I and Hansa-Brandenburg D I during the early stages of the war, and it was not until licence-built examples of the battle-proven Albatros and D II and D III began to reach Fliegerkompagnien, or Fliks, in May 1917 that the fortunes of pilots began to look up. Unlike the German-built Albatrosen, which initially suffered wing failures in flight, the Oeffag aircraft were far more robust than German D IIs and D IIIs. They also displayed superior speed, climb, manoeuvrability and infinitely safer flight characteristics. Such attributes were used to the full by all the leading Austro-Hungarian aces, including Brumowski, Arigi, Kiss and Linke-Crawford, who fought Italian pilots in Hanriots and SPADs, as well as British pilots in Camels and Bristol Fighters. The exploits of Austro-Hungarian aces were initially brought to the attention of English-speaking readers in the 1980s through the pioneering work of Martin O'Connor. An additional 30 years of additional research has allowed Paolo Varriale to integrate and update his work, rectifying some inaccuracies and adding new details and a large number of unpublished photographs. The careful crosschecking of Allied sources with Austrian and German records form the basis for a detailed reconstruction of the dogfights fought by the leading aces. This painstaking research allows many myths to be exposed and errors to be corrected. The book will cover the use of Albatros fighters on the Italian and Eastern Fronts, from the fighters' initial arrival in mid 1917 through to the last days of war. It will also chart the careers of the Austro-Hungarian aces that flew the D II and D III, their successes and their defeats, with additional information about their personal background and their post-war lives in the nations born from the collapse of the Hapsburg Empire. Some 49 pilots achieved acedom during World War 1, and the bulk of these pilots made their claims flying the 586 Oeffag-built Albatrosen.

Mr Varriale and Osprey have produced yet another classic in the Aircraft of the Aces series. This 110th installment(!!) in the set will fill in readers on an air force that is often overlooked by WW1 historians, the Austrian Air Force (also known as the Luftfahrttruppe or LFT). The book was a truly fascinating read, I only wish Mr Varriale had broken down the chapter on the Italian Front into several smaller chapters and sub chapters as it seemed to make the book feel longer in reading. His research however, made up for that. The color profiles are, as usual for Osprey, SUPERB. Thanks Paolo and Osprey for this volume!

Good history of Austro-Hungarian Aces .Good photos! A+++
Ytli
Very Satisfied. Excellent book
Kahavor
Good source of documentation for a not so well known group of pilots.

Another good book from Osprey. This books covers another little covered area of WW1. Great pictures and colored drawing plus unit types and their locations. After reading I surprised by how many pilots made ace status during this conflict
Agarus
The book was fine. Lots of detail like one would expect from the aces series on individual pilots. There wasn't as many aircraft sketches/illustrations as I would have liked.

This 110th volume in the "Aircraft of the Aces" series is about rare and intriguing topics.
Authored by the well known Paolo Varriale, an authoritative Italian historian also appreciated abroad, the book is organised in 4 chapters; most interesting and detailed are the first (devoted to tactical analysis of the Austro Hungarian Kaiserliche und Königliche Luftfahrtruppen, a sort of Imperial and Royal Air Force of the Kaiser) and the third, with a very sharp and detailed scrutiny on the Italian front.
Mr. Varriale makes an in deep description of the duels fought by the Austrian Hungarian top aces (in the likes of Brumowski, Arigi, Kiss, Linke-Crawford), well reproducing that "Knights in arms" Middle Age atmosphere of those days
Main traits in the biographies of these aces are also treated so as the licence production of the Albatros fighter by the Austrian firm Oeffag. The Austrian technical staff made many modifications to the structure of the Albatros D.III, especially on the lower spar subjected to flutter and the construction was surely a top quality one. The in line 6 Austro Daimler even contributed to a top class fighter, very appreciated by its pilots for its good flying qualities and reliability.
Other gems of this book are the beautiful profiles (32 counted, plus 4 plan views) by Harry Dempsey, a true artist and a magician in the reproduction of the vivid colours and peculiar camouflages of these Austrian biplanes. Some of these Albatrosses (particularly the Brumowski's ones) seem to belong to the famed von Richtofen's "Flying Circus"
All in all, a truly special book, very well researched, not to be missed by any military aviation enthusiast with interest in WW1.
OK; interesting, just looked at the pictures and filed it on the rack, Filling in a series collection of Osprey
