Rudolf Berthold: Germany’s Indomitable Fighter Ace of World War I
Peter Kilduff has produced a landmark volume based on extensive research into Rudolf Berthold’s life and military career to form the most complete account yet about Germany’s sixth highest scoring fighter ace of WWI. Iron Man tells the tale of this ruthless, fearless and, above all, very patriotic fighter whose perseverance and bravery made him one of the most famous airmen of World War I.
“A really first-rate book about the German flying Ace by a well-established and much respected historian.” – The Great war Magazine
There is no bitter snarl nor self-pity in this classic novel about the air war of 1914-1918, based very largely on the author’s experiences. Combat, loneliness, fatigue, fear, comradeship, women, excitement – all are built into a vigorous and authentic structure by one of the most valiant pilots of the then Royal Flying Corps.
‘The greatest novel of war in the air.’ –The Daily Mail
Hermann Göring Fighter Ace
The World War I Career of Germany’s Most Infamous Airman
Hermann Göring – Fighter Ace’ is the first in-depth look at Göring’s role as a military flyer and air combat leader from 1914 through the end of The Great War, and how those experiences shaped the personality that came to the world’s attention in 1939.
“Kilduff is very knowledgeable about his subject. His discussion of the process for claiming aerial victories is particularly enlightening. The high-quality book is beautifully bound and printed. Goring himself took many of the photographs.” –Airpower Historian
Arthur Gould Lee
Thanks to a broken leg during flight school, Arthur Stanley Gould Lee gained valuable additional time flying trainers before he was posted to France during World War I. In November 1917 during low level bombing and strafing attacks, he was shot down three times by ground fire. He spent eight months at the front and accumulated 222 hours of flight time in Sopwith Pups and Camels during a staggering 118 patrols; being engaged in combat 56 times.
“This is a classic account of the air war over the Western Front.” –Britain at War.
Black Fokker Leader
One of the most noteworthy German fighter pilots of World War I was Leutnant der Reserve Carl Degelow, whose squadron of mostly black Fokker D.VII fighters posed a formidable threat to some of Britain’s most celebrated air units on the Western Front.
“…provides an excellent insight into one of the conflict’s most notable German air aces.” –Windsock Worldwide
