Unofficial historian Arch Whitehouse has been fighting the air battles of World War I so voluminously over the years that by now he must have the whole mad shebang copyrighted. Back in 1914, when he was eighteen, Whitehouse burned to go to England and enlist in the British Expeditionary Force and fight the Huns. With an extra pair of socks, he caught a ship out of New York to Canada and then crossed over to Britain as a horse tender. In Britain he learned that a volunteer's lot is not an 'appy one. Enlisting in the Northhamptonshire Yeomanry, he first finds himself back tending horses, then being trained as a machine gunner. One day in France he sees a British plane shoot down a jerry and, wham, he's off wide-eyed to enlist in the Royal Flying Corps. On his first day at the aerodrome, Whitehouse is recruited as an aerial gunner and sent up in a two-seater and shoots down his first jerry. The next day he gets his second and soon the reader is practically walking on flak. Some of Whitehouse's three years in the air is hilarious, and his air battles are truly exciting
