Publisher's Summary

Everett Ross often feels like a fish out of water, an ex-Texas Ranger who traded his horse and six-gun for the cockpit of a pursuit aircraft in the British Royal Flying Corps. Through his inimitable West Texas narrative, Ross thrills the reader with a riveting tale of authentic aerial combat in the skies above the stalemated trenches of World War I. On the ground, Ross, who speaks no French, pursues the enchanting Genevieve, who speaks no English. Despite their torrid and frenetic passion, the war rips them apart, and Ross plunges behind enemy lines in a desperate gamble to rescue her.

Good Flying. the rest rather far fetched

Really good flying scenes - particularly the first solo in a Sopwith Camel. The plot in the latter half was far too far fetched & made it rather ridiculous.
Pronunciation of English and French names was terrible. OK when spoken in the first person but not in the narrative. pity because this downgraded the book from 4* to 3*.
