The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

'Nothing more amazing has happened during the war,' said a French eye-witness of Captain Hall's battle with seven German airplanes. Shot through the lungs, he fell for over two miles, his motor going full speed all the way. Then by a miracle he recovered conciousness just long enough to straighten his machine 300 feet from the the ground, and glide safely into the front-line trench.

A man who has gone through an experience like that has something to write about. And yet it is only one of the adventures he tells of in his book.

Written with all the vividness, humor, and wealth of human interest that made his previous volume, 'Kitchener's Mob,' one of the classics of the war, this book has thrilled America.
