Fictionalized story of an enthusiastic, young American and his time as a pilot during World War I. This book (authors of Mutiny on the Bounty trilogy), was written in 1929 and reprinted in 2013. Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall were pilots in the Lafayette Flying Corps and wrote this fictionalized work based on their experiences in WWI. It is very well-written and gives 21st century readers a “you are there” look at the lives of fighter pilots in the early days of aerial combat. Most of the pilots are fictional, with the exception of Charles Nungesser and Raoul Lufbery. ( )

This is a young man's adventure story wrapped around some facts pertinent to the aviator's side of the first world war. There was a gentlemanly side to that war that clove to the aviation side of the conflict (unlike the trench and "gas" use aspects). Mr. Hall points that out and deals fairly gently with the horrors of combat by oblique reference rather than by the blatant reality preferred by 21st Century storytellers. I appreciated that. I read it only because it was co-written by James Norman Hall and Charles Nordhoff. I like their style and fell upon them a long time ago through the "Bounty Trilogy" that they produced in the 1930s. I like them so much that I am collecting their works. There was something missing for me in this one, however, and that was a deeper appreciation of the aircraft and tactics used in those days. I suspect that is dealt with in their "History of the Lafayette Flying Corps" and I'm off now to see if I can find a copy of that somewhere. ( )

Dr. Edmund L. Gros

Paris.
Dear Dr. Gros,
Permit us to dedicate this book to you - the "Godfather" of the Lafayette Flying Corps. It is our hope that this tale of Youth and the Air will in some measure recall the stirring days of the Great War and the part you played in them.
Under the guise of fiction, as you will perceive, we have attempted to recapture something of the spirit of ten years ago, and to show, through the eyes of a young American, how the men of the Lafayette Corps lived and fought side by side with their comrades in the squadrons of France.
Sincerely Yours
C. B. N. and J. N. H
Tahiti, August 25, 1928.

Ten years have passed since the spring when we declared war on Germany, but the events of those days are etched indelibly on my mind.
