Fighting the Flying Circus
Hardcover (no d.j.)
Edward V. Rickenbacker (au); Laurence La Tourette Driggs (il). Capt. Rickenbacker was a high-flying eagle from the time he burst upon the national scene as a record-setting race car driver in 1914 until his death in 1973. This book originally published in 1919, is unquestionably the best of all the American memoirs of air combat in World War I. As a member of the 94th Pursuit Squadron, he evolved his own view of the war as a distasteful duty to be done as quickly & efficiently as possible. In his memoir he displays a gift for illuminating deadly air battles with exact detail. As commander, he set a fine example, managing to log more hours in the air than did the men he led, & becoming the most decorated airman of World War I. Maps. Silver-edged pages & ribbon marker. Reproduced from the 1919 edition.
