Jon Guttman ist ein Autor, der bereits in früheren Büchern seine Stärken gezeigt hat: fundierte Recherche, umfassende Präsentation des Themas - auch dieses Buch beweist das. Zusammen mit den guten Illustrationen ist es ein lesenswertes Buch entstanden, das zum Thema keine Fragen offen lässt.

Osprey, as is evidenced by this book, has produced a fine and concise comparative study of 2 aircraft, which revolutionized aerial warfare.

The Fokker Eindecker, at the time of its introduction to combat over the Western Front in July 1915, was a shock to the Allied air forces opposing it. At a time when the biplane was widely accepted as the most stable and reliable aircraft design, the Fokker monoplane with its synchronized forward-firing machine gun in the hands of skilled pilots like Oswald Boelcke, Max Immelmann, Otto Parschau, and Kurt Wintgens gave Germany a large measure of air supremacy throughout the summer and fall of 1915. Boelcke and Immelmann, in particular, became adept at taking on Allied reconnaissance planes and shooting them down. Britain's Royal Flying Corps (RFC) developed a healthy fear for these 2 intrepid fighter pilots. (Not until the introduction of the DeHavilland 2 fighter in February 1916 would the British have an aircraft capable of taking on and besting the Fokker in combat.)

The Nieuport 11/16 Bébé variants arrived on the Western Front early in 1916. Speedy, agile and built like a thoroughbred, it challenged the Germans for air supremacy during the Battle of Verdun. The Fokker Eindecker, in terms of overall performance, was at a distinct disadvantage against the Nieuport. Only in terms of its gun platform (which in later Fokker variants was enhanced with a second machine gun for greater, concentrated firepower) did the Eindecker outpace the Nieuport with its single Lewis gun, which was perched on a platform on the upper wing, set to fire outside the propeller arc. So until the Germans were to come out with the Albatros D-type biplane fighters in late summer 1916, they had to soldier on with the Eindecker and a number of marginally better biplane fighters.

In summation: "The struggle for Verdun - more of a campaign than a battle per se - saw the first use of massed air assets and for several months pitted a frail German monoplane with a highly effective weapons system against a French design of somewhat superior structure and performance, armed with a makeshift, rather awkward gun mounting suspended above the pilot's head. Their confrontation more often took the form of attacking one another's two-seater reconnaissance aeroplanes than each other - as well it should, since 'blinding' the enemy was very much their primary purpose. Their actual encounters were relatively infrequent, yet sufficient to convince the Germans that the Fokker monoplane's fortunes were on the wane."

The highlights of the book are to be found in the photographs (one of them in original color - a rarity), the diagrams featuring the cockpit layouts of both aircraft, and maps and tables. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Jon Guttman is a preeminent aero historian and when I saw that this Osprey Duel volume was due out in April of 2014, I immediately ordered it in October of 2013. I had no doubts about it's excellence! This volume is extremely valuable to the World War One historian as it is a duel between two aircraft during the infancy of aerial combat. The Fokker Eindecker had achieved supremacy in 1916 and the Allies had to counter it with the Nieport 11/16 Bebe or the British designed DH.2 pusher. This book has all the fabulous hallmarks of the Osprey Duel series; high quality artwork by Jim Laurier and Mark Postlethwaite. Laurier is responsible for the awesome cover artwork! Postlethwaite is responsible for the battle scene depicting the great British ace Albert Ball. The French aces Jean Navarre and Albert Deullin and the German aces Oswald Boelcke and Walter Hohndorf are featured. As always, I enjoyed studying and savoring the cockpit views of the aircraft! Excellent black and white photos support the insightful, well-researched text which elucidates how the "Fokker Scourge" came to an end and the birth of aerial combat began. This volume, as well as other Osprey Duel volumes executed by Jon Guttman and other distinguished authors, is a must have for any World War One aviation library! I highly recommend any of the works by Jon Guttman. You can depend on quality research and attention to detail and accuracy. Links you can click on: Pusher Aces of World War 1 (Aircraft of the Aces) by Jon Guttman and. DH 2 vs Albatros D I/D II (Duel) by James F. Miller. I recently purchased and enjoyed. FE 2b/d vs Albatros Scouts: Western Front 1916-17 (Duel).

Very detailed descriptions of each aircraft. Much information both for general knowledge and for the
dedicated scale or r/c modeler. Highly recommended as a modelers resource book. Has details
not usually found in other books. Cockpit and instrument details a big plus.

Ground Zero for fighter combat 3. November 2014
Von Barrett Tillman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The age of the fighter was 1915-1990-something, about 3/4 of a century. Starting at the beginning Jon Guttman's latest installment in the Osprey Duel series examines two first-generation opponents: the Fokker Eindecker and the Nieuport 11 with its Type 16 derivative. Following the Duel format, Guttman’s volume traces design and development of the rival fighters, setting the stage with the strategic situation on the Western Front 1915-16, and examines the players as well as the equipment. There’s also a useful chronology integrating the Fokker and Nieuport timelines.

It's instructive to note the Great War technological contrast we still argue today: systems or platforms? The Eindecker was the original Systems fighter, with a Maxim shooting through the prop arc, while the Nieuport was the Platform fighter, much better aerodynamically but handicapped by the over-the-wing Lewis gun. Apparently the actual score slightly favored the Nieuport.

Most of the individual pilots will be familiar to readers, and some follow national stereotypes. For instance, Germany’s cool, analytical Oswald Boelcke contrasts with France’s wildly aggressive Jean Navarre. But the author deals with organization as well as aircraft and individuals, noting that Commandant (Major) Charles de Tricornet de Rose played a leading role in forming multi-squadron Groupes before Germany’s Jagdgeschwadern.

Meanwhile, many will be surprised to learn that the British flew Nieuport 11s in combat before the French. Chief among Britain’s early Nieuport pilots was Lt. Albert Ball with six victories in Type 16s. But Guttman touches upon Belgian Nieuports as well.

One subject that might have been included is the famous “Immelmann turn” attributed to Ltn. Max Immelmann. The late Jim Appleby, who built and flew authentic Eindeckers, insisted that nobody half-rolled one off the top of a loop—intentionally! Far more likely Immelmann executed a chandelle which accomplished the same purpose—a vertical reverse.

Supported by some 55 photos and more than a dozen illustrations, this Duel lives up to the series standards—and marks Ground Zero for fighter aviation.
