The pilots' log books, and many previously unpublished photographs has enabled the author to produce the first in-depth look at the activities and accomplishments of this "forgotten" squadron that was the first British fighter squadron to deploy a production twin gun scout on the Western Front (beating the Royal Flying Corp's elite 56 Squadron by a couple of weeks) and the first squadron to take the notoriously unreliable Siddeley Puma powered D.H.9 into battle. The Royal Naval Air Service had a reputation for fielding the most colorful Allied machines in France and Belgium and the reputation was upheld by the Nieuport scouts of No.6 Squadron. With over 170 black and white photographs and superb profiles of the Nieuport 17Bis scouts by Mark Miller in color. Very fine copy.
