9781849083355: Jasta 18: The Red Noses (Aviation Elite Units)

The history of Royal Prussian Jagdstaffel (or Jasta) 18 is one of the more unique and complex of German fighter squadrons of World War I. In fact, the unit could be said to have had something of a split personality. Formed in Flanders at the end of October 1916, the Jasta was first commanded by Oblt von Grieffenhagen, who led it to 35 victories in nine months. In August 1917, the aggressive and demanding Oblt Rudolf Berthold took over the Staffel and brought a cadre of seasoned pilots with him from his former command. Berthold molded his new unit into a dedicated group of hunters, and left his stamp on the unit with a striking color scheme of red-nosed Pfalz and Albatros fighters with dark blue fuselage and tail surfaces. This book tells the complete story of the unit: its victories, defeats, and the great aces who flew the red-nosed fighters

About the Author:

A history teacher living in St Charles, Iowa, Greg VanWyngarden has had a lifelong interest in World War 1 aviation, and has been active in researching the colours and markings of German fighter aircraft for many years. Greg has served on the Board of Directors of the League of World War 1 Aviation Historians and has been both art director and issue editor for that society's journal Over the Front. He is a longtime member of Cross & Cockade International, and has authored many articles in specialist publication and contributed to several monographs dealing with his favourite subject. This is his tenth book for Osprey, having co-authored three previous titles with Norman Franks. The author lives in St Charles, Iowa.

Review:

“[An] informed and detailed history of the famed Jasta ... which takes us from the squadron's formation in Flanders, through its final days at Montigen ... a must have for modelers.” ―Tim Kidwell, Model Retailer

“... a well-done squadron history, with accounts of many fliers during the organization's service life and within the perspective of broader operations.” ―Peter Kilduff, Between the Bookends
