German Aces of World War I: The Pictorial Record - Norman L.R. Franks, Greg Vanwyngarden

Here is a comprehensive grouping of the roughly in access of 350 German airmen (pilots and observers who served in artillery-spotting, bombing and reconnaissance units on the various fighting fronts) who were officially credited with shooting down at least 5 enemy aircraft in combat during the First World War. 

Many of the available photos of these airmen are contained in this book. They give the reader a tangible sense of the people who flew in the first air war. These airmen - through the listings of their dates of birth and death, manner of death, highest rank achieved whilst in service, and units with which they served in combat - in a larger sense, live again. "GERMAN ACES OF WORLD WAR I: The Pictorial Record" is highly recommended for any aviation enthusiast and student of World War I.
