Jasta 5 Volume 1

The full story of Jasta 5, one of Germany's crack air units in WWI, is related in graphic and meticulous detail by Glen Merrill. Supported by many large-format photos, many b/w sketches and all-new colour art by Robert Karr, Bob Pearson and Ray Rimell, many 'well-known' Jasta 5 fighters appear here in revisionist artwork for the first time - Flashar's dragon-marked D.V; Rumey's striped Albatrosse and the enigmatic D.III of Werner Voss, plus many more. For modellers of Albatros D.IIIs and D.Vs, Fokker Triplanes and D.VIIs, there's enough colour data here to keep them going for years!

Volume One contains 60 packed pages (inc. covers) featuring Jasta 5 history; pilot careers, combat details and colour data with over 60 photos and 11 colour pages profiling more than 30 Albatros D.III and D.V aircraft - many wing and full plan views also appear. The book also includes over 30 mono sketches of Fokker E.II, Halberstadt, Roland and Albatros D.II fuselage markings. Stunning cover art by Robert Karr and Bob Pearson depict the striped and chequered aircraft of Fritz Rumey.
