A Must Buy for any enthusiast of WW1 Aviation,
This review is from: Airfields and Airmen of the Somme (Battleground Europe: Somme) (Paperback)
This book is one of a series all about the aces and airfields of the First World War. There are directions on how to find the airfields today, so that any visitor to France could retrace the steps of the aviators who were based at these airfields during the conflict. Also there are photos of the airfields as they were during the war, and also photographs of them taken today enabling the reader to see how the sites have changed over the years.
The book is filled with anecdotes of the various personalities involved as well as directions to the graves of the fallen aviators.
If you are at all interested in aviation of the First World War I would highly recommend these series of books. The author has clearly done a lot of work to produce such a reference. My only slight criticism is that it would have been nice if the modern photos of the airfields could have been in colour- hence 4stars instead of five.
