Wind in the Wires

Author(s): Duncan Grinnell-Milne

Overseas Military

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. After having been forced down and captured, Grinnell-Milne returns to the front to fly late in the war with the famed 56 Squadron, flying the SE5a. The author's eye for detail, sense of humour, and his truly hair-raising experiences make this a charming and riveting read to rank with the greats of Cecil Lewis, Antoine de Saint-Exupery and Arthur Gould Lee.
