Four distinguished German air aces of World War I, and their battles with Allied airmen are profiled in this book. Max Immelmann, the "Eagle of Lille" accounted for 17 British and French aeroplanes, Werner Voss's victories amounted to 48, thirdly the infamous Herman Goring, who gained 22 victories, and finally Lothar Von Richthofen, younger brother of the Red Baron. All four men received Germany's highest award for bravery in action, the famed "Blue Max". In total 124 victories are recorded and analyzed in detail, and there are in-depth personal portraits of the men who were unlucky enough to find themselves under the guns of these deadly German aces.
