A particularly enjoyable number in the long-running series, as the author takes you through the twists and turns of how formal pursuit organizations came to be established in Germany's air arm during the Great War, and its initial heroes. What's particularly good is that VanWyngarden generally allows men such as Oswald Boelcke and Max Immelmann to speak for themselves. About my only gripe with this treatment is when the author tosses out a comment about how Immelmann held Boelcke in a certain level of contempt, without even a passing explanation. ( )
