The runaway success of our first Fokker D.VII Anthology took even us by surprise and ever since its publication two years ago, we've been inundated with requests for the promised, subsequent volumes. In your hands is the first of these, Anthology 2, its greater emphasis being on OAW-buill D.Vlls with their myriad cowling configurations and finishing practices, and continuation of the chronological D.VII unit markings survey that proved so popular with readers of the first volume. Again, we are indebted to regular stalwart contributors, Juanita Franzi, Dave Roberts,
Ian Stair, Greg VanWyngarden and, making a welcome debut to the series, Harry Woodman; their combined talents have produced another invaluable and unrivalled collection of new and authentic reference material.
The Fokker D.Vll's influence on post-war American aeroplane design is rarely conceded, but it played a most important part in that country's rapidly burgeoning love affair with aviation. At the same time, Hollywood made a superstar out of 'old square nose' and Harry's account of the fighter's film career makes for fascinating reading. So enjoy the collection of rare photos, the carefully-researched and painstakingly-executed draWings and paintings that appear in the following pages; evocative images that bring to life once again one of the all-time classic fighting aeroplanes of World War I - the mercurial Fokker D.VII.
