1917 - Machines of War
Bob Sunday, a 17 year old Kiwi joins the Royal Flying Corps and is involved in all the major front line action of 1917, flying a Bristol fighter to begin with and then being promoted to a Camel squadron. He also meets an attractive woman, is involved in the controversy around not providing flyers with parachutes, and is accused of cowardice.
Quite good book for kids, historical details and some fiction all mixed up. A step up from Biggles probably in quality, although aimed at slightly older kids perhaps.
