Overview

This book tells the heroic stories of the 19 Victoria Cross airmen who flew Sopwith Camels and SE5As above the deadly battlefields of the Western Front in the newly-formed Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service.

Some of these brave men were from humble backgrounds with limited education, others were collegiate men from wealthy families, but in the words of one senior officer they all had "the guts of a lion". With rare photographs and much previously unpublished documentary material, this book reveals their courage and adventure.
