Includes Aerial Warfare During World War I Illustrations Pack with 115 maps, plans, and photos. “There is no bitter snarl nor self-pity in this classic novel about the air war of 1914-1918, based very largely on the author’s experiences. Combat, loneliness, fatigue, fear, comradeship, women, excitement — all are built into a vigorous and authentic structure by one of the most valiant pilots of the then Royal Flying Corps. REVIEWS ‘The greatest novel of war in the air.’—Daily Mail ‘Beautifully written with a poet’s eye as well as a pilot’s eye.’— Southern Evening Echo ‘The only book about flying that isn’t flannel.’—Anonymous Fighter Pilot ‘Not only one of the best war books...but as a transcription of reality, faithful and sustained in its author’s purpose of re-creating the past life he knew, it is unique.’—Henry Williamson, author of Tarka the Otter.”-Print ed.
