KIRKUS REVIEW

With Mr. Whitehouse back in the cockpit, you know pretty much what to expect--a standard flying formation of World War I, some Over There idealism which seems anachronistic today, a certain amount of action and a romance trailing off into the sunset. As for the story, when first they meet Bartley Crispin and Ralph Macintosh are at Princeton--Macintosh joins the British Royal Flying Corps, actually to serve the Germans as a spy, and Crispin ends up in England via a Rhodes scholarship. With the war Bart also is pressed into service and ultimately will serve to permanently ground the faithless Macintosh. . . . For those to whom actions mean more than words of one syllable.
