archive.org has the 1916 book "The Jews in the Eastern War Zone" lets just say it wasn't fun being Jewish in Eastern Europe in WW I. One will note that Russian newspapers form the period are major sources of Jewish mistreatment.

correction it should be FFA 4b (Bavarian)

There is a book out "The Great War's Finest An Operational History of the German Air Service Volume 1 Western Front 1914" by matt Bowden It is a fine work on the German air service pre war and with its operations in the West in 1914 and how well it preformed. It looks like the author has more books on the German Air Service in the works. I will let you know when they come out.

Grif if you have any other info on Alexandra's or one of the other hospital trains belonging to the IF being bombed post it here and if you have a date and location I might be able to ID the unit that did it.

Does anyone know which Princess Maria Luisa is this?

I also posted on French forum, but it will more likely be someone from Italian branch of the family, either Bourbon-Parma of Bourbon Two-Sicilies?

What do you think?
