In 1916, Everett Ross quit the Texas Rangers and traveled to England to join the Royal Flying Corps, trading his horse for a Nieuport pursuit biplane. No stranger to violence and death, now-Lieutenant Ross duels with German pilots in the pristine skies above the grimy trenches where foot soldiers fight for victory foot by bloody foot. Between dogfights, Ross loses his heart to a young French beauty whose domineering mother fights her own battle to protect Geneviéve from this American cowboy wearing a British uniform. Ross soon must decide between love and duty, between orders and necessity. This fast-moving story combines romance and combat action in a land knocked out of kilter by a deadly war often seemingly without objectives. As a pursuit pilot in the War to End All Wars, Ross struggles to maintain his own sense of honor and valor in the midst of chaos and death. "Highly recommended reading and a welcome addition to personal and community library collections."-Midwest Book Review. "A great read that will fit well alongside 'The Razor’s Edge' and 'A Farewell to Arms.'"-Stephen Phillips, Military Writer's Society of America

The Rage of Angels

Hardcover: 223 pages
Publisher: Carroll & Graf Publishers (May, 1997)
Language: English
ISBN: 0786704098

"From the author of The Three Passions of Countess Natalya (1985), an affecting account of how a young British aviator from the wrong side of the social tracks goes about surviving the last year of WW I. Not yet 21, Marten Corby has served for two years as an infantryman on the Western Front and survived seven months of aerial combat. Sustained by alcohol, memories of an unattainable girl back home, and an eerie ability to detach himself from his horrific environment, the airman keeps his comrades in arms at a distance. The only son of a working-class family from inner-city London, Marten is serving with Peter West, a golden boy who befriended him at the public school to which he won a scholarship. Even so, Marten (once wounded and decorated for valor in the trenches) refuses to fully renew the acquaintance for unacknowledged fear of further loss. Moreover, while among his squadron's best fliers, he does little more than duty requires, shooting at German aircraft only when fellow pilots are at risk. Invalided back to England after a crash landing, Marten learns that Mary, the lass he loved from afar, has betrayed Peter, who expected to marry her. Distraught, Marten finds solace in the arms of Jean Stacey, a worldly woman four years his senior. Marten returns to France in appreciably better spirits; the once alienated airman is also readier to assume responsibility. When Peter is killed at the height of a last-gasp German offensive, he's prepared to bear even heavier burdens. At the close, a renewed Marten is shepherding a flock of greenhorns back to base from a turning-point battle, confident he will live to return home and to marry Jean. A well-handled coming-of-age tale that offers a rather less glamorous view of the Great War's pioneering fighter pilots than legend allows." -- Copyright © 1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.

A Pilot in WWI
by John Anthony Watson
Paperback: 196 pages
Publisher: PublishAmerica (June 23, 2005)
Language: English
ISBN: 1413785468

This novel is full of historical facts gleaned from the logbook and diary of John Kenneth Watson, a pilot in the Royal Flying Corp during WWI. A fictional story of war, love, and intrigue is intertwined with adventure and compelling events, including being shot down and captured by the Red Baron, only to escape in a very unique way. His father, John, was a very successful and wealthy trainer of thoroughbred racehorses and expected his son, Ken, to carry on the family business. However, he had an inward dislike for the racing business and a strong passion for flying. Ken fell in love with Ivy Rose, considered a lowly commoner to Ken's upper crust family. A wartime romance followed and played a key role in Ken's life that adds charm to this novel. His military status and wealthy upbringing brought him in contact with many famous and royal people of the day, including Prime Minister Lloyd George, Field Marshal General Haig and Winston Churchill.
