Illustrated with over 250 photographs and profiles of the various fighter aircraft they used in battle, this fascinating book takes a journey from Flanders to the Somme, to the Verdun to the Vosges.The author, a First World War One expert who has worked with the BBC and The History Channel, was aided by two battlefield photographers.
