Voices in Flight (ePub)
Thanks to the foresight of the authors, Voices in Flight is a literary memorial to the hugely gallant men who fought their war in small dangerous and vulnerable aeroplanes. We hear told the stories and thoughts of not only pilots but ground crew and others closely associated with this form of combat. These interviews bring home vividly the comraderie, the humour, the sadness but above all the thrill of flying experienced by members of the RFC and later the fledgling RAF. First hand accounts of dog fights make graphic reading. This is a never-to-be repeated opportunity to honour the memories of old aviators by bringing their experiences to the attention of younger generations.
In this splendid volume, they tell their own unique and very special stories. The tales of dare devil dog-fights from pilots and recollections of hardships and extreme conditions from ground-crew will fascinate a multitude of readers from the most experienced military historian and family history researcher to the casual reader.Roll of Honour, Michael D. Booker
This fascinating book with over 40 photographs of aircraft, covers part of our heritage that many previous generations would have rather have forgotten about, however by writing it, the authors have in my humble opinion provided a lasting tribute to the memory of these men and a source of reference for our future.
It is a must buy for any Great War enthusiast!
