Overview
-

Bill Bond went to serve as a fighter pilot on the Western Front, from where, to the ever present sound of gun fire, hardly a day went by without him writing to his sweetheart. They were letters of unconditional love which also described in minute detail his service life and experiences And Aimée replied in kind. By now Bill was a captain and an ace, and when, tragically, he was taken from her one July day, she completed her book about their extraordinary love affair as a kind of release to enable her to contain the pain of her loss.

REVIEWS
-

"If you're a World War I aviation fan who really wants something different, pick up this reprint of a 1918 classic ... This tome is truly something special… highly recommended... entertaining, well-written, heart-wrenching and a true contribution to any World War I aviation bookshelf. Grub Street has rendered a service to aviation fans by reviving a genuine classic that has been unavailable for nearly half a century.”"
