About the Author
Captain Eddie V. Rickenbacker was the most successful fighter ace in World War I, with 26 aerial victories to his name. A Medal of Honor recipient, he was a government consultant in military matters after the war, and the longtime head of Eastern Air Lines. He died in 1973.

The only problem I see, and this is a minor one, is with the title. Although the title makes it sound as if Rickenbacker spent most of his time fighting against the famous Flying Circus of the Red Baron this simply isn't the case. He does talk about several deadly battles with the Flying Circus but these are few and far between. Rickenbacker makes no claim of ever personally fighting the Baron himself.
of the air ware as fought by the US, Germany, France, and Great Britain in WWI. I couldn't put it down.
