'A true and proper book of military history, researched and revelatory; better yet, its up close and personal detail brings the air war dangerously alive... A really worthy addition to WW1 studies' John Lewis-Stempel, author of 'Where Poppies Blow' and 'Six Weeks'
'An excellent account of the air war over the Somme. Well researched & engaging reading. Very much recommended' Paul Reed, military historian, author, battlefield guide
'a unique and important book on the First Air War' Trevor Henshaw, Cross and Cockade First World War Historical Aviation Society and author of 'The Sky Their Battlefield II'
'Jill Bush’s book is also impressive by being well researched, documented and illustrated. Further, it is the best written World War I aviation history account this reviewer has read in some time. "Lionel Morris and the Red Baron - Air War on the Somme" deserves the highest recommendation' Peter Kilduff, League of WW1 Aviation Historians and author of 'Red Baron: Life and Death of An Ace'
'The book has much of interest for readers of all levels of knowledge. Specialists may wonder if it covers only well-trodden ground, but they would have to be very well-read to find nothing new here' The Aviation Historian Magazine
'I was very taken with this book. The time period is endlessly fascinating , but it was Bush's ability to bring the story to life that made it so vivid' Air Power History Journal
