WWI air combat from McCudden's point of view,
This review is from: Flying Fury (Hardcover)
This book is a little dry, especially compared to 'Winged Victory'. It was written by McCuden himself, and it can be defined as combat reports written in a language so that all the civilians understand in an era when aviation was absolutely new to everyone. The book is full of action, one can learn a great deal about McCudden's tactics and also WWI air combat in general. What it lacks is the human side of the fighting. Sometimes he wonders off path and tells a funny anecdote, but he apologizes to the reader and goes back to writing about the sorties he made.
