This volume is one of the latest editions to the Osprey Duel series. The British FE 2 was a "pusher" type fighter/reconnaissance plane with it's engine and propeller placed behind the pilot and the observer/gunner sat in a "tub" in front of the plane. This plane along with the DH 2 fighter plane (another "pusher" type) helped gain air supremacy over the German Fokker Eindecker. The Germans countered the "pusher" airplanes with the Albatros scout series (DI, DII, DIII, and DV.) James F. Miller has capably executed an examination of this historic confrontation from WWI aviation history. Some of the best artwork by Jim Laurier and Mark Postlethwaite supports the text as well as black and white photos. The cockpit views of the aircraft are awesome! The dogfight between Manfred Von Richthofen, the "Red Baron" and the FE 2 manned by Cunnell and Woodbridge on July 6, 1917 is featured. I highly recommend this title! This is one of the best Duel volumes yet! I also recommend James F. Miller's other Duel series title. DH 2 vs Albatros D I/D II: Western Front 1916 (Duel). James F. Miller also has a volume dedicated to the Albatros D.III, which is due out in March of 2014. Albatros D.III: Johannisthal, OAW and Oeffag variants (Air Vanguard). Albatros D.I and D.II. Albatros D.I-D.II (Air Vanguard) is also available!

Another great book concerning the early days of flight. The book gives a good comparison of the types of aircraft flown by the RAF and German Air force in WW1. The courage of all the flyers in this time comes out in the writing, but I was stunned by the courage that was displayed on a daily basis by the gunner in the FE 2. It is somewhat damning that the Germans were so far ahead of the British in the caliber of aircraft that they were able field at this time of the war.

I found this educational and interesting. There are great color images and descriptions of aerial battle. Tactics and technology is discussed.
