REVIEWImmelmann Eagle of Lille
Posted: Monday, September 21, 2009 - 12:25 AM UTC
Max Immelmann and Oswald Boelcke were awarded the Orden Pour le Mérite on 12 January 1916. Later that year on 16 June 1916, Immelmann was killed in a dogfight with seven British aircraft. His death, like that of many other aces, was controversial. While the British credited the pilot of an F.E.2b with his loss, the Germans proclaimed that the synchronized machine gun on Immelmann''s Fokker E.III malfunctioned and he shot his own propellor off. However, after examining the wreckage, Anthony Fokker concluded that Immelmann''s aircraft was brought down by German anti-aircraft fire. Casemate publishers brings back a great classic for our shelves.
