The book has been widely quoted an anthologised. Since it appeared Norman Macmillan has researched deeply into many of the facets of the war and has conducted a world-wide correspondence with other airmen from both sides. In consequence, a wealth of authentic knowledge has been added to the books original values.This is, above all, a personal story containing, as well as many vivid combat scenes, the authors experience as a flying pupil in the RFC before Bloody April 1917, and as an RAF air fighting instructor in summer 1918.

The pages bring to life the carefree, gallant and sometimes tragic men who made that first air war the brief setting for what was probably the end of the Age of Chivalry.
