    Still another pertinent text regarding German heavy aircraft development during the period. Some detail images of the R.s.

    Haddow, George W. and Grosz, Peter M., The German Giants: The Story of the R-Planes 1914-1919, (1962, 3rd ed. 1988), ISBN 0-85177-812-7 Definitive text on the subject with period German Army Airforce command structure information not found elsewhere.

    I have the Putnum(?) book on the German "R" plans, let me know if there is something you need from there. Send me a PM or whatever in case I don't look back at this thread.
