About the Author

Jon Guttman is senior editor, research director, and contributing writer for the Weider History Group, which publishes Aviation History. Specializing in World War I aviation, he has written eleven titles in the past including the popular Balloon Busting Aces of World War I in Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series. The author lives in Leesburg, VA.


"In one of the book's best sections, Guttman compares the training and operational capabilities of British and German pilots. It's a topic too seldom addressed, especially in WWI literature, since manned flight was barely out of its infancy at that point. With more than 50 photos plus a dozen or more excellent profiles, cockpit views and action scenes, Sopwith Camel vs Fokker Dr I maintains the Osprey series' visual appeal. Its 80 pages represent a taut, well-conceived treatment of a topic that could easily fill three times that volume." --Barrett Tillman, Aviation History (May 2009)"In all it is a superb look at two of the more famous aircraft that fought in the Great War. It is a book that I know you will enjoy and one that I can highly recommend to students of the time and enthusiasts alike." --Scott Van Aken, (March 2008)..".Sopwith Camel vs Fokker Dr I describes the challenges of establishing aerial superiority over the trenches in 1917... the two aircraft were a good match for one another, which makes them an excellent subject for the Duel Series... [A] great companion to other titles detailing the specific aircraft and can become an important part of any aviation reference library." --Chris BanyaiRiepl, Internet Modeler (April 2008)
