Relive the epic air battles of ace pilots Billy Bishop and the Red Baron, in full graphic novel illustration. This fully illustrated graphic novel follows six individuals who lived through the battle in the skies during the First World War. Each story highlights an international personality ? from a young girl who survived Folkestone air raids to the Red Baron himself ? and how their experiences helped shape the war in the air. The First World War saw the first large-scale use of aircraft in warfare, and the development of vast aerial armadas by all major combatants. Aces like Billy Bishop became household names and media figures, and aircraft evolved from a barely-formed scientific curiosity to a deadly, integral part of modern warfare. Through gripping illustrations, explore the lasting legacy of the First World War in the air.
