5.0 out of 5 stars excellent introduction to the RFC, 23 Nov. 2004

This review is from: Tumult in the Clouds: British Experience of War in the Air, 1914-18 (Paperback)
This book provides an excellent introduction to the RFC, especially for those who like myself had previously paid scant attention to the seemingly unglamourous aircraft and flyers of world war 1, having been seduced instead by the streamlined world of spitfires, mustangs and supersonic jets. The authors bring home to the reader exactly how fast and furious air combat was in world war one, the dog fights in aircraft capable of flying no faster than 120 mph as murderous as any ever fought - more so for the lack of parachutes. This is no dry history: the pilots come alive through passages from their diaries, letters and interviews - the excitement, the terror, the joys of flying and being alive, it's all here. The last RFC veteran passed away only recently. This book is a superb tribute to them all.
