Mackersey, Ian, 1925-
World War, 1914-1918 - Aerial operations.; World War (1914-1918); Air pilots, Military - History.
The 1914-18 conflict narrated through the voices of the men whose combat was in the air. This book tells the story of that first great air war, illustrating its devastating emotional impact on the participants and their families in a narrative enriched by the private correspondence that flowed between them and diaries, reports and interviews. The aerial combat tactics that the sacrifices of those First World War aviators created became so tactically effective that they were used to deadly effect in the Second World War.
