Product description

Review

"Although academically sound this book is an exciting read . . . the author brings the war to life by skilfully weaving in a large number of quotes from the men who fought with the Australian Flying Corps (AFC). . . . an excellent book, well written, decent maps and excellent illustrations. I cannot recommend it too highly." --Peter Hart, author, "The Somme: Darkest Hour on the Western Front"

Book Description

The first book in 90 years dedicated to the daring and courage of the airmen and mechanics of the Australian Flying Corps - a tale of a war fought thousands of feet above the trenches from which only one in two emerged unscathed.
