This history of the two provides a powerful assessment of how the designs changed German aerial combat abilities in a pick for any World War I collection.
The Midwest Book Review (April 2013)
The author covers factory and license-built aircraft with ... thoroughness, clarifying differences with reader-friendly texts and crisp, clear charts. His operational history of the Albatros D.I and D.II (as well as transition to the D.III) draws on excellent fi rst-person and other narratives. Jim Miller has 'mined' photos from distinguished collectors for this book and his U.K. artist colleagues supported his efforts with fi ne color 'action' and detail views. The Albatros D.I 'phantom' view is particularly noteworthy. This book is an excellent treatment of an important early combat aircraft and is highly recommended.
Over the Front (Summer 2013)
...another superb title in the Air Vanguard series and like the others, includes a large two page foldout cutaway of the D.II at the end of the book. A superb reference and a fine read as well. One I can easily recommend to you.
