His grammar doesn't seem to be perfect, but this guy really can tell a story.
It would have been very easy, unavoidable almost , to turn out a bland, matter-of-fact technical catalogue on less-than-perfect aircraft, but the author manages to mix clear descriptions of the technical deficiencies (that must necessarily be told) with enthralling tales of each aircraft's service history.
Even in the case of 'crude' WWI aircraft, the way each story is related makes this a very difficult book to put down.
Informative and thoroughly enjoyable.
