The Aerial Adventures of 1st Lieutenant Waldo Heinrichs and the 95th Aero
Squadron 1917-1918. The 95th Aero Squadron was the first American pursuit
squadron to fly over the front in March 1918 and 1st Lieutenant Waldo Heinrichs
was one of its original members. The history of the Squadron is told through the
words of those who served, Heinrichs' richly written diary forms the nucleus of
the story supported by contemporary letters, anecdotes, and combat reports from
many of the other flyers. Entries from the official Squadron history as
contained in the History of the American Air Services AEF (the Gorrell History)
round out the narrative. Over 280 photographs, most unpublished from the
personal albums of the participants, show planes, places and personnel which
surrounded this happy band of warriors.
