{detailed description}This new, and largely rewritten, edition of a long out-of-print World War I classic will be warmly welcomed for its extraordinarily fresh and realistic picture of air fighting-a picture drawn by one of the participants who later wrote a number of successful books and who also achieved distinction as a test pilot.
INTO THE BLUE was first published forty* years ago when many names had to be withheld and some information was incomplete. The book has been widely quoted and anthologised. Since it appeared Norman Macmillan has researched deeply into many of the facets of the war and has conducted a world-wide correspondence with other airmen from both sides. In consequence a wealth of authentic knowledge has been added to the book's original values.
This is, above all, a personal story containing, as well as many vivid combat scenes, the author's experience as a flying pupil in the RFC before Bloody April 1917, and as an RAF air fighting instructor in summer 1918. The pages bring to life the gay, gallant and sometimes tragic men who made that first air war the brief setting for what was probably the end of the Age of Chivalry.
