2 Levine, Joshua On a Wing and a Prayer: The Untold Story of the Pioneering Aviation Heroes of WW1, in Their Own Words
UK. Collins 2008 0007269455 / 9780007269457 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Very Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
The men who joined the Royal Flying Corps in 1914 were the original heroes of flying, treading into unknown territory and paving the way for later aerial combat. They became icons for the soldiers in the trenches, and a stark contrast to the thousands on the fought aircraft to aircraft and man to man. For the first time the air became a battlefield of its own - by 1918, hastened by the terrible war, aircraft were understood to be the future of modern warfare. The top corners on the green boards are bumped and the dj shows signs of rubbing marks.

Winged Victory (Echoes of War), Yeates, V. M.
4 Yeates, V. M. Winged Victory (Echoes of War)
UK. Ashford,Buchan & Enwright Ltd. 1993 090767545X / 9780907675457 Reprints Soft cover Very Good No Jacket Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
For the pilots of the Royal Flying Corps, the battle for air supremacy over the Western Front in the spring and summer of 1918 was savage, costly and ultimately, deeply disillusioning.Yeate's great classic describes in fine and bitter detail day after exhausting day in the life of a squadron of Camel pilots, seen through the eyes of a young officer who himself falls victim to the unremitting stress. The extraordinary graphic descriptions of flying and air-fighting have rarely been bettered, but it is in the writing, particularly in capturing the grim, sardonic, often humorous temper of the times, that Winged Victory's chief fame lies. The covers show light shelf ware and light marking to the text block. PLEASENOTE: International economy shipping to world zones 1 and 2 is by sea and could take up to 90 days to arrive. 
Price: 12.50 GBP
