Description "This book is a record of observations made during those two years (1917-1919), and is concerned chiefly with aviation training. It is hoped that it will be of interest to those who were in the Air Service and their friends, besides being of assistance to future students of military aeronautics. To many of the pilots it may explain the reasons for some of the sufferings which they endured. It may also serve as a warning of the evil of unpreparedness. Nearly all of the errors, mistakes, and delays to which it refers might have been avoided, had the American people insisted on having their representatives in Congress make suitable preparation for an adequate army and a wee-equipped Air Service in the event of our being thrown into the World War." This book is part of the World War One Centenary series; creating, collating and reprinting new and old works of poetry, fiction, autobiography and analysis. The series forms a commemorative tribute to mark the passing of one of the world's bloodiest wars, offering new perspectives on this tragic yet fascinating period of human history. Each publication also includes brand new introductory essays and a timeline to help the reader place the work in its historical context.Author Biography
