There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The writing style is that of a memoir, written in the first person from the point of view of what I imagine is a much older WIll Tucker reflecting back on his days in the RFC. The writing is so well done I could almost picture listening to Tucker telling his old flying stories. The plot and his irreverent commentary are seamlessly entwined together and the result is an absolute joy to read and immensely quotable. As for the plot, I thought it seemed a little far fetched at first (assassinating the Red Baron?) but Shalako made it work and well.
All-in-all, any enthusiast of the Great War and WWI aviation in particular should give this book a read. You won't be disappointed and for the price, what have you got to lose? I'm already reading it a second time and it's just as good.

The downsides for me are the slight historical inaccuracies; especially the parts where the protagonist invents the Finger Four and Thach Weave tactics about 30 years too early!
Apart from that, it's a well written, engaging book and I actually learnt a few interesting nuggets about WW1 pilots along the way.
