World War I was the time of dynamic development of aviation. Aircraft created during that period and pilots who fought in them, became legends that have fascinated generations of pilots and aviation enthusiasts. Legends of Aviation in 3D is a publishing series with a goal to present legendary aircraft from the pioneer era of military aviation in an innovative way. Thanks to color 3D renderings we can almost touch the Fokker D.VII, see its details, get to know its meticulous airframe structure and understand the phenomenon of this legendary aircraft. With the virtual Fokker D.VII, Marek Ryś inspires us to explore the history of the aircraft afresh. The modern 3D images impressively harmonize with the old photographs. Tomasz Kowalski tells us the story of pilots flying the new Fokker biplanes and takes us to the dark and romantic period of the Great War when knights of the sky were born and killed. We are convinced that Tomasz Kowalski and Marek Ryś's publication is a valuable addition to literature concerning the legendary Fokker D.VII and simultaneously a successful and exceptional attempt to present the earliest history of aviation in an original way. We have made all efforts to make the layout and quality of the series fulfill the needs of our readers.

An expert examination of the evolution of military aviation and its profound impact on warfare—from the employment of balloons during the French Revolutionary wars to the use of aircraft in World War I. Military Aircraft, Origins to 1918: An Illustrated History of Their Impact is a detailed, authoritative exploration of the role and development of military aviation, from its beginnings to the conclusion of World War I. Military history scholar Justin Murphy carefully illustrates the impact of aircraft on military warfare, examines the different types of aircraft, and includes a wealth of photographs and descriptions. Organized thematically, the work covers everything from the origins of military aviation and the impact of aircraft on World War I to the role of reconnaissance missions, auxiliary aircraft, fighters, and bombers. Each chapter highlights key individuals, advancements in aviation technology, industrial organization and aircraft production, and the influence of aircraft on military tactics and strategy. Murphy also demonstrates how aircraft contributed to the development of total war and blurred the lines that had traditionally separated combatants and noncombatants.

Designed in a great rush at the end of 1917 just in time to take part in the German standard fighter competition held in January/February 1918, the D VII easily walked away with first prize. As Germanys premier fighter unit, von Richthofens JG I (led by Hermann Göring in the wake of the 'Red Baron's' recent death) received the first examples of the D VII to reach the frontline in late April. Built to oppose the new generation of French SPAD XIIIs and British SE 5as and Camel fighters, the D VII was arguably the best all-round fighting scout of the Great War.

The Fokker D.VII is widely regarded as the best German aircraft of the war. Its development was championed by Manfred von Richthofen. In January 1918, Richthofen tested the D.VII in the trials at Adlershof but never had an opportunity to fly it in combat. He was killed just days before it entered service. When introduced, the D.VII was not without problems. On occasion its wing ribs would fracture in a dive or high temperatures would cause the gas tank to explode. Even so, the D.VII proved to be durable and easy to fly. As noted by one authority, it had "an apparent ability to to make a good pilot out of mediocre material.." When equipped with the BMW engine, the D.VII could out climb any Allied opponent it encountered in combat. Highly manoeuvrable at all speeds and altitudes, it proved to be more than a match for any of the British or French fighter planes of 1918.
