Entering German service with the Jagdstaffel in 1915 the Eindecker (monoplane) was the first fighter to be armed with a synchronized machine gun firing through the propeller. The Eindecker began the phase of the Great War air war known as the "Fokker Scourge" when the Germans gained air superiority from mid 1915 into early 1916. Many of Germany´s great aces and air combat innovators recieved the Pour le Merite the (Blue Max) Germany´s highest military decoration while flying the EIII. The British DH2s, FE2s, French Nieuport 17s and Spad VIIs brought about the end of the "Fokker Scourge" and the Eindecker was phased out by the end of 1916.
