Some of the first American youths to volunteer their services toward the end of WWI were sent to Italy to learn to fly and later assigned to the Italian-Austrian front. This is an exciting story of what aerial warfare at night is really like with the pilots flying over the Alps, the Piave River, and the Adriatic Sea repeatedly escaping death from pursuit ships and anti-aircraft guns. With a foreword by Fiorello H. LaGuardia who was the author's C.O. in Italy and became mayor of New York City. With 36 black and white illustrations. Very fine copy.
