Publisher's Summary

Eddie Rickenbacker was a WWI fighter ace. He arrived in France as a fresh greenie who knew little about flying and less about air combat. He learned everything he needed while fighting against the German air force and the famous Flying Circus commanded by Manfred von Richthofen.

In this biography of his wartime experiences, Eddie tells us of his midair adventures and battles as well as how he learned to "defeat the hun" and earned the title of Ace.

Take a breath already

great story, great insight into the experiences and perspective of American volunteer pilots in France but why is the narrator reading so quickly? Take a breath and slow down a little
