Featured Book: Into the Skies: A World War I Aviator Story by Christopher Carroll


This story portrays an American who gets caught up in World War One as an ‘aviator’ from the beginning to the end, an unusual achievement, which makes for an absorbing tale. The author has taken elements from the memoirs of aviation pioneers, most of which began in the last years of the war, modified them to reflect changes that occurred from 1914 to 1918, and added other adventures. The back story includes some instances from the infancy of flight and the inspiration it provided a boy as he grew up in Dayton, Ohio.

As a ‘memoir’ of the Great War the book is an exciting and enjoyable read, whilst also providing a chronology of the War from the point of view of a German-American pilot who joined the French Aéronautique Militaire and flew on the side of the French for the duration of the conflict.
