Mr. Hart outlines the strategic position of the protagonists and how the opposing generals used their air forces to support the "boots on the ground". He moves neatly from the big picture to the letters written home by the individual pilots. The air forces desperately needed experienced leadership, and so the aces were recalled again and again until statistics caught up with them and killed them.
The reader will perch on the pilot's shoulder and see how death is done. An excellent book.
