Edited by Norman Franks and translated by Adam M. Wait. First published in Germany in 1939, this book is a collection of memories by Buckler, a fighter ace who ended World War I with 36 victories over British and French aircraft. Norman Franks has placed these stories in context and added accurate and authenticated details of what Buckler achieved. The pilot's words remain largely unchanged and the translation by Adam Wait gives valuable insight into what it was like to fly over the Western Front from the other side of the line. With illustrations, an Index of Personalitites, and the original introduction by Peter Supf. New.
