A classic memoir of a renowned First World War ace * Insight into the evolution of aviation. Sent to France with the Royal Flying Corps at just 17, and later a member of the famous 56 Squadron, Cecil Lewis was an illustrious and passionate fighter pilot of World War I, described by Bernard Shaw in 1935 as "a thinker, a master of words, and a bit of a poet." In this vivid and spirited account the author evocatively sets his love of the skies and flying against his bitter experience of the horrors of war, as we follow his progress from France and the battlefields of the Somme, to his pioneering defence of London against deadly night time raids. "There is not a dull page" - The Times. Cecil Lewis distinguished himself in action with eight victories in the First World War and awarded the MC; he died in 1997.
