367 pp, 8vo (8 7/16" H). "(A) story of five months of hair-raising adventure on the Italian front in which young Otto Prohaska, the hero of 'A Sailor of Austria' and 'The Emperor's Coloured Coat', entrusts his life to the nascent, unreliable, and terrifying Imperial and Royal Austro-Hungarian Flying Service. It is the summer of 1916, and Otto, joined by his self-willed aerial chauffeur Sergeant-Pilot Toth, entrusts his life to a succession of flimsy biplanes in the sky above war-torn Alpine battlefields. On the ground, the rickety Habsburg empire has begun its final slide to disaster. And in the air is the unmistakable sense that history, poignant and ironic and always surprising is erupting all around them. Written with craft, style, and an astonishing breadth of emotion, (this) is the continuation of a remarkable series." Book is very lightly cocked, is cracked at title page but pages are holding well, minor edge wear, very light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, small area of surface paper loss on front panel, small corner crease on front flap.
