Description
Originally published in 1934, this biography recounts the life of Britain's top scoring ace of World War I. Ira Jones—himself one of the all-time great British fighter pilots—draws upon letters, journals, and personal reminiscences to flesh out this portrait of a man deeply admired by his comrades, and whose selfless devotion to the war effort ended in a fiery crash at the age of 31. Despite ongoing disputes over his actual number of "kills," it was Mick Mannock's leadership and discipline that meant the most to the fledgling British air force.
