The Jasta Pilots or Jasta War Chronology

Are these the same books with different titles? If different, which has most information?

The Jasta Pilots: Detailed Listings and Histories, August 1916-November 1918

Jasta War Chronology: A Complete Listing of Claims and Losses, August 1916-November 1918

Jasta Pilots, the book that I have, came out some two years earlier than Jasta War Chronology. I assumed that the later publication was largely an update of the earlier work, so I have never really compared the two side by side. My suggestion would be to get whichever publication can be had at the best price!

The Jasta Pilots consists of biographical i formation on Jasta Pilots while the Jasta Chronology is a day by day list of victories and losses.

Hi Westerman.

They're masterpiece's of research! If you're serious about the subject, you need both of 'em.

Along with 'Above The Lines' and 'Casualties of the German Army Air Service 1914-1920'. Both published by Grub Street.

If it wasn’t for Norman Franks, my library would be half the size. My hats off to researchers like Norman and many others....

I have both of them and both come in handy in my own research.
