Synopsis: Carl Menckhoff Reminiscenses of War and Captivity is the story of one of Germany's great aces of WWI, who scored 39 victories and was awarded the Pour le Mérite, Imperial Germany's highest award. Moreover, this story does not end with the war, but continues until today with the touching story of two families, the Menckhoffs and the Averys, uniting years after Menckhoff's last combat when he was downed by fledgling American pilot Walter L. Avery of the 95th Aero Squadron. Much of the story is in Menckhoff's own words, but to complete the picture and put it in perspective, further information on Menckhoff and the Menckhoff family is provided by author Dr. Hannes Täger. To make the story accessible to the greatest audience, the text is presented in both German and English. The book has 304 pages and contains 208 photos, 14 of them in color, 9 illustrations and maps, and splendid color profiles of three of the fighters flown by Carl Menckhoff.
