Tomasz J. Kowalski, Wojciech Fajga, Vitor Costa, Damiam Majsak; Famous Airplanes. The Albatros D.III, often called De-drei, is a neat single-seat biplane fighter armed with two guns firing through the propeller. It goes up like a balloon and at full throttle it reaches 170 kilometers per hour.

Used by the Imperial German Army Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte) during World War I. A modified licence model was built by Oeffag for the Austro-Hungarian Air Service (Luftfahrtruppen). The D.III was flown by many top German aces, including Wilhelm Frankl, Erich Löwenhardt, Manfred von Richthofen, Karl Emil Schäfer, Ernst Udet, and Kurt Wolff, and Austro-Hungarian ones, like Godwin von Brumowski. It was the preeminent fighter during the period of German aerial dominance known as Bloody April 1917.

Illustrated with 44 black/white photos, 46 pages of builds, 2 pages of line-art and 22 color profiles; 93 pages.
