One Smart Fokker

5/16/2015 - 5/23/2015

Anthony Fokker was a Dutch engineer who designed some of the best planes of the war. Coming from a neutral country, Fokker chose to lend his talents to the Germans. Throughout the war, the Allies made attempts to lure Fokker to their side (see Attack of the Hawkmen). Perhaps his best remembered invention is the synchronization gear that allowed pilots to fire through their propeller blades.
