The battle in the air above the trenches has held an enduring fascination for generations; the plane itself was only a new development when the First World War started and the pioneers sought to gain any advantage in the skies over their opponents. Edgar Middleton wrote copiously on the subject as well as active air service was involved with the Aeronautical Institute of Great Britain, in this book he records in sketches and anecdotes the reality of the air-war.
The author was a well-respected and long-serving war correspondent of the air war for such papers and magazines as Cassell’s Magazine, Daily Chronicle, Daily Express, Evening News, Flying, New York Sun, and The Star.
