The Pfalz D.IIIA offered few advantages over the D.III other than the important relocation of the machine guns to the upper fuselage thus making them more accessible to the pilot and easier to aim in combat. An increased area tailplane and rounded lower wing tips on most D.IIIAs provided some aerodynamic improvements although neither version was as readily popular with the majority of German pilots as were the Albatros D.v, Fokker Dr.I and, later, the D.VII.
This volume presents a unique reference package which includes the largest collective number of Pfalz D.IIIA photographs ever published. Once again historian Peter M. Grosz shares with us his unique archive and historical material while draughtsman Steve Simkin provides exacting detailed drawings to the standard 1/72nd and 1/48th scales which will delight all modellers. Several of the D.IIIA photographs in this book are published for the very first time and while a number of them are admittedly of poor quality, they reveal sufficiently interesting markings or rarely-appreciated details that warrant their inclusion.
