Overview

A classic memoir of WWI flying, Wind in the Wires paints a vivid picture of early war training and combat, especially with the Maurice Farman Shorthorn and the Bristol BE2.

The author’s eye for detail, sense of humor, and his truly hair-raising experiences make this a charming and riveting read to rank with the greats of Cecil Lewis, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Arthur Gould Lee.
