Above Ypres : The German Air Force in Flanders 1914-1918 (Hardcover) (Bernard Deneckere)
About this item
An exciting new survey on the air war over Flanders’ fields, Above Ypres offers a definitive account of the costly battles waged above the Ypres Salient during the First World War. The simultaneous misery and bravery that occurred on Belgian battlefields, such as Hill 60, Messines, Yser, Mount Kemmel, Passchendaele, and Ypres, has been thoroughly documented and examined over time. Yet, not until now has the air force received their proper due for their significant role in the battles: for five years, the air force battled intensely in the sky as their comrades waged war in the trenches below.Written from a German perspective, Above Ypres provides a detailed history of the German Air Service and the Naval Air Arm and examines the roles of particular planes, airfields, tactics, and major battles that contributed to their airpower growth. With many never before published photographs and military information, no student of air warfare or World War I history will want to miss it.
