This latest installment of the 'In Action' series focuses on a very interesting and little-covered topic - WWI bombers, in this case, German bombers. Five different types are covered: the A.E.G G.IV, Gotha G.IV, Friedrichshafen G.III, Gotha G.V, and Zeppelin R.VI. Of course all five machines are biplane design and most featured nosewheels! Okay, all the aircraft were taildraggers (as was the norm), but many were equipped with nosewheels to prevent nosing over during night/rough field landings.
This title is full of excellent photos and narrative history of these aircraft during their operational years and will serve the historian and the modeler with great design and detail information. As with all of the 'In Action' series, color profiles are included in the middle of the book to illustrate how the various lozenge camouflage schemes looked on larger subjects.
I recommend this title to all aviation buffs and WW1 modelers/historians alike! My sincere thanks to Squadron/Signal Publications for this review title!
