Bristol F2 Fighter Aces of World War I

Yeh, I'm an aeroplane geek. You get over it :D.

Very interesting. A little bit hard to digest all at once, because there was a lot of information. What really did surprise me was how many pictures there were of the aircraft etc. I've always seemed to think that there weren't so many pictures of WWI aircraft floating around out there. This book proved me otherwise.

I liked the fact that it gave information about what happened to the people after the War and where they ended up.

I have to add, that although I enjoyed it a lot, if you're not interested in planes, please don't bother to read it. It's about aircraft. It's very academic and well written and detailed, but if you don't care about it, you really won't enjoy it one little bit.

Cool, cool. What person is it written in?

Third person, talks about loads of different pilots, although some bits of it are diary extracts and in first.
