New York: Harper & Brothers, 1970. First American Edition. Octavo. Item #028058
234 pages. In the author's note at the beginning of the book he writes: "The letters in this volume were written in France in 1917 when I was a pilot in No. 46 Fighter Squadron of the Royal Flying Corps. Looking back to a period of his life over fifty years he writes: "Could I have taken part in those crazy dances of death three or four miles up in the sky, flying a tiny, fragile, one gun aeroplane, trying to kill other young men in equally flimsy craft?' This book is seldom seen in very good condition since it was read to death by those fascinated with the air war in 1971 and it was issued in a very small print run. Bound in red and blue cloth, spine lettering blue, endpapers are maps, near fine in near fine pictorial dust jacket lettered in red and blue.
