Those with an interest in the tragedy of the 'Great War', its air operations and its southern theater, may be fascinated with Mr. Chant's history of Austro-Hungary's airmen who gained the coveted title of 'Ace.'
Fred Boucher, AeroScale (April 2007)
The book is introduced by an excellent overview of Austro-Hungarian air units, listing unit designators, airfields, commanders and aircraft types; three pages of highly useful information that puts the fi ghter forces within a broad perspective. The text also notes in detail the struggle by the Hapsburg Empire's Luftfahrtruppen [Air Service] to attain good solid performing fi ghters in the license-built variants of Germany's famed Albatros D-series. Key points are illustrated by photos that are very fine ... Master aviation artist Harry Dempsey's 32 fullcolor profiles nicely reinforce the photos, depicting a variety of aces' aircraft and markings ... This volume has been a long time in coming, but is well worth the wait. It is recommended highly.
