I thumbed through its many illustrations of the aircraft when young, and I read sections on the Red Baron in high school.
It was good to read it in its entirety.
I love this book so much; this is the second time I've read it.
It has plenty of pictures, is written in an extremely readable fashion, and gives a heartwrenching overview of the air war, with a focus on the notable aces.
(The Red Baron gets a chapter to himself, but also given plenty of attention are Georges Guynemer, Eddie Rickenbacker, Albert Ball, Mick Mannock, and others.

This book puts me in a really sad mood, but it's worth it.
An excellent overview of the World War I air war and the advances in aviation the war inspired.
The book boasts a large collection of historical photographs that brings the action, the airplanes and the individual combatants to life.
