“”Vigilant”” tells the dramatic tales of air combat as fought by the best German pilots of WW1. Manfred von Richthofen, Max Immelmann, Oswald Boelcke and other famous daredevil flyers are joined by the lesser-known but equally resourceful colleagues such as Rudolph von Eschwege and Hans Shuz, taking part in furious battles in the sky and close escapes on the ground when brought down the wrong side of the lines.

German War Birds contains some of the earliest information to appear after thew war about air combat in the Middle East and Russia, as well as the Western Front, and about the significance of observation balloons as targets that were virorously attacked. The author focusses onthe ehart of the action and recrates the experience of he airborne with immediacy, excitement and a vivid turn of phrase, drawing the reader into events as they happened.

“”Vigilant”” was the pen name of Claud W Sykes.
