WWI book on eBay: "Unter Stahlhelm und fliegerhaube"

Recommended Posts




There is currently a listing for a book on eBay that may be of interest to one of our German-speaking OFF flyers. Olham, perhaps? :smile:


An original 1936 German printing of "Under Steel Helmet and Pilot Cap", by Gustav Praclik.


Here's the link:


WWI pilot Gustav Praclik's memoirs


Can't argue with the starting price. I'd scoop it myself if I could read German at anything above a drunk, dyslexic snail's pace.

Thanks for the tip and link, Lou. Next book I have here is Kilduff's book about Carl Degelow: "Black Fokker Leader".

And then I have other books on my list to get first - like McCudden's "Flying Fury", or Kilduff's book about Berthold.

Then there must be something by (or about) Arthur Rhys-Davids? Is there a good read about Albert Ball?


According to "The Jasta Pilots" Uffz. Gustav Praclik was only in Jasta 5 from October to November 1918.
