Double Decker C 666 - Haupt Heydemarck

"DOUBLE DECKER C666" is the second book in a trilogy written by the author that I much enjoyed.  Haupt-Heydemarck describes in exciting  - and at times, harrowing - detail many of the missions he flew as an observer with his pilot "Take" Engmann on long-range reconnaissance and bombing missions against the French in the Champagne Region during 1916.   Each chapter has illustrations depicting various aspects of the life Haupt-Heydemarck experienced as a frontline aviator, as well as photos taken by Haupt-Heydemarck himself, which give the war a real world immediacy.    Especially touching is the close relationship he had formed with Engmann, which made them an efficient combat team.    This book is priceless.
