Unread, unmarked, minimal shelf wear to dj. Foreword by Herman Goring. Karl Bodenschatz flew with Manfred Richthofen and other famous German aces in the deadly Jagdstaffeln hunting Allied aircraft above the trenches of Flanders and France. In his unique position as squadron adjutant, he recorded the lives and the deaths, the triumphs and the tragedies of Jagdgeschwader No. 1. His poignant descriptions of fighter tactics, his joy in flight and his fellow pilots are faithfully rendered in English from the old German script of the original German edition. Many of the dozens of photos included in this edition are from the private collection Bodenschatz's widow, who cooperated with translator Jan Hayzlett. 224 pages plus 16 pages of b&w photographs. Appendices. Index.
