Pfalz Flugzeugwerke was a World War I German aircraft manufacturer, located at the Speyer airfield in the Rhineland-Palatinate. They are best known for their series of fighters, notably the Pfalz D.III and Pfalz D.XII. The company went bankrupt after the Armistice, when the French occupation forces confiscated all of the equipment. Pfalz was the brainchild of Alfred Eversbusch, son of a foundry owner in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse. It appears that he had built his own aircraft between 1912 and 1913, although the exact origin of the design is unclear. On June 3, 1913, the Pfalz company was registered, consisting of Alfred, his brother Ernst, and his brother-in-law Willy Sabersky-Mussigbrodt, as well as several investors: Richard and Eugen Kahn, and August Khan. Pfalz Aircraft of World War I is the most comprehensive coverage of this German fighter series ever published. Every Pfalz design is detailed, from the early two seaters and prototypes through the classic D.III, D.VIII, and D.XII fighters that saw combat on the Western Front. The book is filled with more than 320 photos, many of operational aircraft and their markings, that have never before been published. It includes a lavish, 18-page color section illustrating 62 aircraft, including many that have never before been portrayed in color, as well as excellent five-view scale drawings of 15 Pfalz designs to standard modelers' scales of 1/48 and 1/72.
