FWIW, Wilhelm is listed in the Army list of 1914 as Wilhelm Bölcke. The family spelled their name with an umlaut, but Oswald, who always used Latin characters, wrote his name Boelcke, with the oe linked.
"A surprise attack is much more demoralising than any other form, and generally results in the person attacked diving or pulling the machine into such a position that it forms a most satisfactory target for the few seconds necessary to deliver a decisive blow. "
