Book Recommendation Sought: WWI Aerial Combat

I have to do a term paper this semester on aerial combat during WWI. Does anyone know of some excellent books or other resources I might avail myself of?


I know it’s not what you’re looking for, but they do have a bit of aerial combat. And the author, Capt. W.E. Johns, was a bomber pilot in WWI, so he was there. Anyway, I can’t let an aviation thread go unreplied to.

Sadly, my books on WWI flying are limited to Richtofen’s autobiography, a biography, and a study of his last flight. (I have lots of Guillow’s WWI models though! :smiley: )

This looks promising.

A good place to start with links and booklists.

Ernest Gann’s In the Company of Eagles is a novel, but quite evocative.

I found this very informative.

Ha ha, jimm. Thanks, don’t ask, that looks like the ticket! Yours may be a bit narrow, Lute, but thanks.

Depending on your focus, The Red Battle Flyer is an online copy of a book written by Manfred Von Richtofen, better known as the Red Baron.
