Excellent book, well written in perfect English by Cecil Lewis, a truly heroic flying officer who came right through the war, Extraordinary and incredible details First World War reconnaissance and Aerobatics flying pretty primitive planes with early and sparse technological systems of the period. .Terse, true and a real page-turner!
Truly inspirational, courageous reflecting honest, straightforward day-to-day accurate historical experience and commentary- first-class!
Incidentally I have yet to receive the Kindle version purchased from you please.

A great autobiography, you can't beat true stories like this, they make hollywood films seem shallow and boring by comparison..:)

I loved this story, by the end of it you realise how lucky anyone could make it all the way through the first world war in a flying machine... Many didn't

A good read overall. A bit poetic at times which gets in the way of the story and makes it a bit heavier to read than it needs to be.
