Capt. Rickenbacker was a high-flying eagle from the time he burst upon the nat. scene as a record-setting race car driver in 1914 until his death in 1973. This book originally published in 1919, is unquestionably the best of all the Amer. memoirs of air combat in WW1. As a member of the 94th Pursuit Squadron, he evolved his own view of the war as a distasteful duty to be done as quickly and efficiently as possible. In his memoir he displays a gift for illuminating deadly air battles with exact detail. As commander, he set a fine example, managing to log more hours in the air than did the men he led, and becoming the most decorated airman of WW1 maps. Silver-edged pages and ribbon marker.
