Summary
When war broke out in 1914, fearless pioneers took to the skies above France in flimsy biplanes. Aerial combat was perceived as glorious and chivalric, but the reality was very different: new Royal Flying corps subalterns in 1917 had a life expectancy of 11 days. The term 'ace' caught on, and daredevil aviators like the Red Baron and Billy Bishop became household names, just as the heroic pilots who defended the skies over England in 1940 are still feted as 'the Few'. The top fighter aces of World War II acrued hundreds of kills, though a pilot's life expectancy was still measured only in weeks. In the later 20th century, jet technology enabled pilots to pursue fast-paced combat over huge areas. This short history provides a fascinating overview of the history of fighter pilots, the experience of battle in the sky, and the enduring cult of the fighter ace. -- Back cover
