Tonight, we'll be reading "Luck on the Wing" by Major Elmer Haslett. This 1920 book offers a first hand account of combat in the air by an American observer or "sky spy." World War I was the first conflict where combat took to the skies in machines that provided powered and maneuverable flight. This was a risky profession where brave young men flew into battle in machines made of fabric and wood. The author was regarded as one of the finest practitioners of his craft.
