However, thousands of young Canadians served in the Royal Naval Air Service, the Royal Flying Corps, and, later, the Royal Air Force, playing a part out of all proportion to their country's population. Here, then, is the story of these men - not just the famous 'aces' such as Bishop, Barker, and Collishaw (though they are here too) - but of the other fighter pilots, the men who flew bombers, the Zeppelin and U-boat hunters, the indispensible observation aircraft pilots, and their observers." Book has very minor edge wear. Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling.
