"This book by James Miller looks into the background and the development of the Albatros D.III as well as the aircraft that came before it and after it. It looks at the differences between the aircraft built by the various factories. This includes the camouflage schemes put on the planes and the factory painting that was done. There are a goodly number of combat reports as well as comparisons between the different aircraft, especially the different series produced by Oeffag, who continued to develop the type.
Chock full of excellent period photos as well as full color art work and profiles, it is a superb book for any WWI fan or those who want to know more about this important German aircraft. A great read and highly recommended."
- Scott Van Aken,

Gute Darstellung von Entwicklung und Einsatz der verschiedenen Varianten. Ein Stern Abzug, weil die Darstellung der KUK-Luftstreitkräfte mit Albatros-Ausrüstung nicht vollumfänglich genügen kann. Hier ist eine etwas detailliertere Darstellung der Verwendung in den FliK der KUK LFT wünschenswert, insbesondere auch eine erweiterte Darstellung der KUK-Asse, die dieses Flugzeug geflogen haben.

Superb summary 19. März 2014
Von Rai Skrupskis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a beautifully illustrated brief account of the technical and operational history of the Albatros DIII. It's amazing how much detailed information is included in its 64 pages and the author should be commended for his ability to describe the convoluted story of external differences among the 3 manufacturers. Scrap views are a great help here. The illustrations and color profiles are superb and augment the text extremely well. First hand accounts by its pilots and opponents really give you a feel for this aircraft. Essential guide for the historian and modeler.

As a result of the First World War, the small, fast, maneuverable, and heavily armed fighter emerged as a major component of modern warfare. Although powered flight had been possible since 1903, as late as 1914 there was little understanding of its possibility to extend warfare into a three-dimensional battlefield. But once field commanders saw the potential of arming their aircraft, they rushed headlong into transforming them into "warplanes." Over time, they would evolve through five essential generations during the war. Each stage represented a major technological breakthrough and was dominated by one side during the war. It also forced the development of fighter tactics to make aerial combat more effective. In turn, each stage was made obsolete by its successor, and while supplies of outdated aircraft and tactics might remain throughout the rest of the war, they became less significant as they were superseded by later developments.

This was seen in several distinct families of fighters in the third generation. The French Nieuport 17-27 aircraft, the Albatros series of fighters built by the Germans (copied from captured Nieuports) and the British Sopwith aircraft were all examples of this type. These aircraft dominated the airspace over their particular sectors during much of 1916 and the first part of 1917. The deadliest of these new aircraft was the Albatros D. III, designed by Robert Thelen and his staff. This new aircraft was an attempt to improve the maneuverability of the Albatros D. II.

While there was no appreciable increase in speed over the D. II, the D. III could reach 1,000 meters in 2 1/2 minutes and flight endurance was increased to two hours. Also, the radiator was relocated and re-arrangement of the radiator piping improved the pilot's vision.

Deliveries of the Albatros D. III began in December, 1916 with 13 in service by January, 1917; 137 by March, 1917; and 327 by May, 1917. Its service peak came in November, 1917 when 466 were in service. When it entered service, it slowly started to show its effectiveness.

Some of the first Albatros D. IIIs were supplied to Jasta II, commanded by Baron Manfred von Richthofen. On 24 January 1917, when von Richthofen was attacking one F.E. 2b, a dangerous crack appeared in the lower wing of his machine. He was able to land safely, but his trust in Albatros designs was temporarily shaken, and he flew a Halberstadt D. II for a time. On the same day, two pilots of the Jasta Boelcke were killed through similar wing failures. The source of the trouble lay in the single spar of the lower wing; it was positioned too far back from the leading-edge and tended to twist under stress. The Albatros D. III had inherited the structural weakness of the French Nieuport!

In spite of that, during the month of April, 1917, the British lost 151 aircraft on the Western Front while bringing down only 30 German aircraft. But by the end of April, 1917, a newer and better British aircraft, the Royal Aircraft Factory S.E. 5 helped bring an end to the Albatros D. III's superiority. A total of 1,340 Albatros D. IIIs were built; 500 by the parent firm Johannistahl and 840 by the Ostdeutsche Albatros Werke (IOA.W), the company's East German branch at Schneidemuhl O.A.W.-built D. IIIs were largely similar to those constructed at Jahannistahl but featured a larger rudder with a fully rounded trailing edge.

The ALBATROS D. III: JOHANNISTAHL, OAW, AND OEFFAG VARIANTS is a well researched account that covers new ground in an attempt to understand the technology and tactics behind the dramatic World War I dogfights in the skies over Belgium, France, and Germany. Both the illustrations and photographs are of excellent quality and add to this book's information.
