KIRKUS REVIEW

A popular writer on aviation and military history now tells the story of one of the most famous aviation ventures in World War I -- the Lafayette Escadrille. He concentrates on lesser known fighter pilots who flew day in and day out without fame or notoriety. Their dogfights, scouting flights, and their espr make subject matter one reads with delight. How men like Rickenbacker joined the squadron, and how it was dissolved into the U. S. Air Service, complete a carefully detailed story.
