Publisher's Summary

"The single best treatment of the American Air Service in World War I." - America and World War I

From April to November 1918, the American Air Service grew from a poorly equipped, unorganized branch of the U.S. Expeditionary Forces to a fighting unit equal to its opponent in every way. Hostile Skies details the actual battle experiences of the men and boys who made up the service squadrons at the front - Raoul Lufbery, Elliot Springs, Fiorello La Guardia, and, of course, Eddie Rickenbacker.

Forensic Story and Reading

What did you like about this audiobook?

It was free.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

no

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

To me, it is presented as written. Forensic and boring.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Sprance did his best to bring this book to life. For me, he could not.

Do you have any additional comments?

This, of course, is my opinion. There were two reviews prior to mine with 5 star writings. I would encourage others to make their own evaluation. I would be interested in hearing Mr. Sprance narrating a different genre.
