Fokker Dr 1 Aces of World War I Paperback
Illustrated by Harry Dempsey
Part of the Osprey Aircraft of the Aces S. series
Undoubtedly the most famous fighter type to see service on either side during World War I, the Fokker Dr I was a revelation when it entered service on the western front in 1917.
Manfred von Richthofen's JG I 'circus' was the first Jasta to completely re-equip with the new fighter, and in the skilled hands of its numerous aces, the Dr I proved a formidable opponent.
The Dr I remained in service on the Western Front until replaced by the superior Fokker D VII in May 1918.
Just weeks prior to that, however, Germany's leading ace, the great 'Red Baron', had been killed at the controls of a Dr I.
