Flying Fury : 5 Years in the Royal Flying Corps
(Greenhill Military Paperbacks)
by James McCudden VC 32 pages of plates 5 x 8 The unique story of the RFC's greatest fighter ace. A gripping account of World War I aviation from the pilot's seat James McCudden was an outstanding British fighter ace of World War I, whose daring exploits earned him a tremendous reputation and, ultimately, an untimely end. Here, in this unique and gripping first-hand account, he brings to life some of aviation history's most dramatic episodes in a memoir completed at the age of twenty-three, just days before his tragic death. During his time in France with the Royal Flying Corps from 1914 to 1918, McCudden rose from mechanic to pilot and flight commander. A dashing patrol leader, he combined courage, loyalty and judgement, studying the habits and psychology of enemy reconnaisance pilots and stalking them with patience and outstanding success. Fighter ace James McCudden died in July 1918, after engine failure caused his plane to crash just four months before the end of World War I. His success as one of Britain's deadliest pilots earned him the Victoria Cross.

The Sky Their Battlefield
Air Fighting and the Complete List of Allied Air Casualities from Enemy Action in the First War
by Trevor Henshaw
"Heralded as a milestone is a book which more than justifies the description. This is a truly remarkable record of the war in the air, monumental both in terms of the scope and the depth of the research; it is a work the scale and depth of which is seldom seen, in its 578 tightly packed pages the entire organisation of the work is splendid...  a work of major importance... the book also contains a very wide selection of relevant photographs. It represents research of the highest order and is excellent value for money."
