...Greg VanWyngarden has produced a nifty treatment, covering everything from the Morane-inspired monoplanes to the elegant D-III series to the boxy D-XXI... With more than 100 good-quality photos, many new to this reviewer, the book also benefits from Harry Dempsey's excellent color profiles. Osprey also includes a useful index in most of its current titles--a very helpful addition. Considering that no other book is likely to be attempted on the esoteric subject, Pfalz Scout Aces rates five stars.
Barrett Tillman, Aerodrome
Osprey's military titles are very subject-specific, allowing for a depth of focus most other general-interest surveys lack. Their latest titles are top picks military reference libraries will appreciate [including] Greg VanWyngarden's Pfalz Scout Aces of World War I .

Once again, from the delightful pen of author and WWI German Air Service expert Greg VanWyngarden, comes another bookshelf gem ...
Indy Squadron Dispatch (November 2011)
As any airplane modeler can testify, the Pfalz D.III, with its sleek, sharklike fuselage and rakish wings and tailplane, rates among the half-dozen best-looking aircraft of World War I...modelers with a nostalgic streak for the Pfalz aesthetic will welcome...striking marking schems... Van Wyndarden's latest offering provides more than a Pfalz promise.
Jon Guttman, Aviation History
Accompanying the usual comprehensive text on the types' operations and their associated personnel, there are 32 colour side views - some of them very colourful indeed - and eight plan views... Modellers of World War I aircraft will, I am sure, be very interested in this 71st volume in Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces Series, and given the colourful markings it could very well interest those whose primary interests lie the Great War.
