Michael O'Connor capably executes an examination and guide to essential aviation history "flashpoints" in this Battleground series dedicated to the aerial events pertinent to the great battle of Arras and it's vicinity. One of the highlights here is the great ace Albert Ball's final dogfight and grave site! These books are the next best thing to actually going to France and Mike O'Connor provides information, maps, and photos to elucidate this fascinating facet of WWI aviation history! I am a WWI aviation enthusiast and I have the complete collection of Mike O'Connor books. They are a very valuable part of my WWI library and I reference them often in my studies and reread them from cover to cover!
