FokkerDr1.com's Library Collection

I will be posting this later on my site but here is a list of books in my collection.

The FokkerDr1.com Library

The FokkerDr1.com library has six categories that consist of World War 1 material.
This library helps me in my research on the Fokker Dr.I and Manfred Von Richthofen and maybe one day I can open up my collection for public research. I’m active looking in acquiring further books for this library. I will add new additions when they come in. If you would like to donate a book or your collection please email me.

1). Manfred Von Richthofen
2). The Fokker Dr.I

Laserlloyd- You are missing three Dr.I related books you may want to find.

Fokker Dr.I
ISBN 3-613-01514-5
Motorbuch Verlag 1994
Jorg Armin Kranshoff

Fokker Dr.I in Action
ISBN 0-89747-29-2
Squadron/Signal Publications 1989

Fokker Flugzeugwerke in Deutschland 1912-1921
ISBN 3-89880-355-4
HEEL Verlag Gmbh 2004

First book lots of errors, but several photos I have not seen before. Hard to find.

Second book lots of fairly poorly reproduced photos. Dr.I units widely misidenified. Blue and white Jasta 18 Dr.I courtesy of Rodney Gerrard. Widely available.

Third book lots of errors on Dr.I prototypes, but cover has one of best Dr.I photos I have ever seen. Not written or edited by Peter Grosz, who provided the photos. Available new from Germany and UK.

Lloyd,

Another book you may want to add is

In the Footsteps of the Red Baron
ISBN 1-84415-087-9
Pen and Sword Books Ltd. 2004
Mike O'Connor and Norman Franks

This 179 page guidebook has capsule histories of many significant events from the Baron's service along with maps and "then and now" photographs of the terrain where they occurred. It's an interesting volume, and would appear to be quite helpful for those who would like to visit the battlefields of the Great War.
