Summary
In this long-out-of-print true-adventure story, one of our ealiest flying Aces re-creates the spectable and the drama of his flights into glory with the French Air Service, the famed Lafayette Escadrille, and the U.S. Air Service. Long before the United States officially entered the First World War, a small group of courageous Americans chose to join France's desperate struggle against invading German armies by enlisting in the French Foreign Legion. Among these dedicated men was Charles J. Biddle. A serious student of aviation, Biddle compiled a record of excellence in French aviation school; he went on to serve with the French Air Service, then with other Americans in the Lafayette Escadrille, and finally after America's entry into the war, with the U.S Air Service. During his tours of duty, Biddle commanded two pursuit squadrons, rose to the rank of Major, and won the designation of Flying Ace
