Aces of Jagdgeschwader Nr III (Aircraft of the Aces) - Greg Vanwyngarden, Harry Dempsey

"ACES OF JAGDGESCHWADER Nr III" chronicles the history of a fighter group in the Imperial German Air Service that, from its inception in February 1918 til its dissolution due to the Armistice 9 months later,  fought bravely in the skies over the Western Front against its British, French, and American opponents.     Its achievements mirrored the fortunes of Germany as it sought to achieve victory in the West before American forces began arriving in greater numbers from the summer of 1918 onward.  The book also has lots of excellent photos and artwork that will delight many an aviation aficionado.
