Synopsis

Synopsis

Responsible for destroying 1294 enemy aircraft between June 1917 and November 1918, the Camel was the most successful fighting scout employed by either side in terms of the sheer number of victories that it scored. The Camel was renowned for its sensitivity and need for skill and experience, and casualties amongst pilots undergoing training on the type were very high. More than 5490 examples were constructed, and this book covers its combat use on the Western Front, in Palestine, on the Italian front, in the Home Defence role in the UK and in Russia.
Praise

Praise

With Fokker Dr I Aces of World War I and Fokker D.Vii Aces of World War I (Part One):"The prolific Norman Franks is the author of all three of these books, though he shares the credit with color expert Greg Van Wyngarden for the two German tomes. Franks is a highly regarded aviation historian, and Van Wyngarden is recognized as one of the top authorities on World War I aviation markings, so you can bet that what you see is a fair representation of historical hues. I recommend these books, and you will find the entire series to be worthwhile additions to your library." -Mike Corr, Aerodrome
