Osprey's examination of German air forces of World War I (1914-1918). The Imperial German Army Air Service of World War I grew from just 500 men in 1914 to 80,000 in 1918, inventing in the process a wholly new form of warfare. The exploits of the first fighter 'aces' have been widely celebrated, and have tended to overshadow the other, equally important branches of the fighting air forces – the reconnaissance and ground attack units, the airships and strategic bombers. This concise but fact-packed guide to both the Army and Naval Air Services – their command, organization, strength, training, support services andoperations – offers a morebalanced picture, while giving the heroes of the Jagdstaffeln their full due. Uniforms and flying clothing are described in detail, and illustrated with rare photographs and meticulous colour plates.

I recently purchased this book and was amazed at the wealth of information it contained about the German air force of World War One. This book helped me to gain a better perspective on the air force's organization and various branchs within. I have read many books on aircraft and aces from the Osprey series but they do not go into deep detail about training organizations, ground support units, anti-aircraft defence, balloons and other topics like this one does! I now have a better appreciation for the German air force. This volume helps make sense out of the organization the Germans employed during World War One. Like other Osprey titles, it is a concise, handy reference tool and a must have book for any serious World War One aviation collection! A nice companion to this volume would be Richthofen's Circus by Greg VanWyngarden. It shows the accomplishments and aircraft of the famous German fighter wing lead by "The Red Baron" Manfred von Richthofen. 'Richthofen's Circus': Jagdgeschwader Nr 1 (Aviation Elite Units)British Air Forces (1) : 1914-1918 (Men-At-Arms Series, 341) and British Air Forces 1914-18 (2) (Men-at-Arms) may be of interest as a counterpoint!

This book looks at the organization of the German Air Service during WWI and how it evolved through trial and experience. The Germans, like all the other participants of the war, had little idea of how to employ aircraft but by the time of the Armistice they had reorganized their air organization into units appropriate for their capabilities and recognized many of the principles of air warfare, even if they were not always able to follow those principles (the organization of same-model aircraft into units coming to mind). The Germans also made extensive use of airships and balloons and were among the first to organize their antiaircraft units into the air arm (if not THE first).

A lot of good research went into this book and it tells, especially when it comes to a history of the types of detachments used in the air services at the beginning of the war. Well-illustrated with photographs, tables and original artwork.

i always wondered why balloons were used for obsevation when by 1917 aircraft were so available,and less vulnerable than a balloon and now i know. ballons were quick to put up and pull down with electric winches and gave a more dimensional picture.No need to wait for a plane to arrive after a call is placed.Also i sometimes confused a balloon with an airship,now that's cleared up too.the pictures and descriptions in this book when describing the high altitude airships,left me with "frost on my nose and chest and glandular congestion."There was a good paragraph about the famous medal "the Blue Max",and how its awarding favored officers over enlisted and may have actually been more of a disruption to troop morale than a boost.The author states although that the germans saw the air force as a tactical and not a strategic force during WW1 and this somewhat hampered them during WW2.Really from my limited knowledge of the "Treaty of Versailles"what hampered the German Air Force in WW2 was the clauses in the treaty that prevented Germany from developing a strategic wing.One clause states specifically"No military aircraft".I am sure that any nation that could develop the types of aircraft that the Germans made during WW1 would surely understand the strategic value of it.In technology a disadvantage of even a year can put a country way behind with only scissors and paste to play"catch-up".This book is an asset to the Osprey Series.
