Overview
-

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.

REVIEWS
-

"This is one neat book on the Fokker D.VII. It will be of great interest to modelers and aviation enthusiasts alike."

- AMPS Indianapolis

“For the modeller, aviation historian, or technical spec lover these books by Kagero are the end all and be all, though this book is not only for them. The World War I or aviation history tyro will find this book easy to get into. One very interesting bit of history of World War I aviation that the book shows is that planes built in Germany during the war were not carbon copies. You can see very real differences in planes manufactured by different firms. This, along with all of the other parts of the book, shows that if you have any interest in World War I aviation, or just aviation history, it belongs on your shelf.”
