Berkshire-based Harry Dempsey is a talented profile artist who specialises in fighter aircraft of World War I. He has illustrated all of Osprey's World War I Aircraft of the Aces titles to date. Norman Franks is one of the world's leading authorities on World War I fighter aviation, having published some of the seminal works on the subject. He is currently working on a long list of volumes on Great War aces for Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series.
""With Sopwith Camel Aces of World War I "and "Fokker D.Vii Aces of
World War I (Part One): ""The prolific Norman Franks is the author
of all three of these books, though he shares the credit with color
expert Greg Van Wyngarden for the two German tomes. Franks is a
highly regarded aviation historian, and Van Wyngarden is recognized
as one of the top authorities on World War I aviation markings, so
you can bet that what you see is a fair representation of
historical hues. I recommend these books, and you will find the
entire series to be worthwhile additions to your library." -Mike
"When you pick up a book that has the names "Franks" and "VanWyngarden" on it, how can you go wrong? This...has all the earmarks of a book that you'll want to read...its written by two of the most truly outstanding WWI aviation authors of our time, it discusses perhaps the most famous airplane of the entire way, and its fun!... Fokker Dr1 Aces of WWI never forgets to entertain. It includes riveting dogfight accounts, lengthy diary and letter excerpts from pilots, and all the things that we always wanted to read about in an aviation book... Buy this book. It is way cool." -"Indy Squadron Dispatch"
