Fokker D.VII

Hello,

Yesterday I received "De Fokker D.VII" in dienst van de Nederlandse luchtvaart (in service of the Netherlands Army Air Service) from Nico Geldhof.

I have not had the time to start reading, but after a quick look I saw lots of photo's and paintings of D.VII's. Anyway, it looks very promising.

I just got this book in. It is marvellous both for the content and the presentation. Pictures are large format and surely taken from original prints, so the highest quality has been retained. There are a lot of colour side views, which are also very well presented. Artist is quoted as Luuk Boerman, great job.

The historical content of the book is prodigious.

Mr. Geldhof is to be congratulated on having finished this magnum opus.

Cheers

Kees
