Descrizione

A rare day-to-day account by a young German squadron leader in Jagdstaffel 35 during the grim last year of World War I.
 
Originally published in 1933, Wings of War provides minute descriptions of kills, losses, and the Germans’ step-by-step retreat in the face of increasingly overwhelming Allied forces in the air.
 
Brutally honest and vividly written, Rudolf Stark’s account of the endgame of the Imperial German Army Air Service provides an intimate, front-row glimpse of the death-throes of a once-feared corps. This book also contains reproductions of some of the author’s paintings depicting life on the Western Front.
 
“A work of depth and insight, illustrated with the author’s own photographs and paintings from a cockpit perspective . . . League members are highly encouraged to read this classic of aviation history literature.” —Over the Front
 
“Provides a thoughtful look at the decline of Germany, its military, and its air force in the last half of 1918.” —World War One Illustrated
