Details

Exploring his early flying training as well as his time in France, this memoir describes the perilous life of a combat pilot at a time when there was no heating or oxygen in the open cockpits, no radio communication, no brakes and no parachutes. In the concluding chapter Lee describes his time running a training squadron in 1918 and his disdain for the uniform and rank structure of the newly formed RAF.
