Report of operation by Pour le Mérite recipient Kissenberth

Description

A double page operational report (draft) of Oberleutnant and Pour le Mérite recipient Otto Kissenberth (FA 8) about his 1915 mission to support the army unit "Gaede"(29 Jan- 21 Mar) and the "Alpenkorps" (30 June-17 Oct). Both pages have been signed by Kissenberth. This report contains some very interesting facts about the missions, armoury, and victories. 

The Pour le Mérite recipient Kissenberth (1893-1919) joined the "Fliegertruppe" in 1914 and went to the Bavarian Aviation Department 8b after completing his aviation training. In March 1915, he was severely wounded during combat over the Vosges. After his recovery, he fought in France and Italy and took over the command of Jasta 23b in 1917.
