In this installment of the New York Times-bestselling graphic novel series, take to the skies with the flying aces of World War I. When the Great War began in 1914, America had plans to stay out of it. But some young men were so eager to fight, they joined the French foreign legion. From deep in the mud and blood of the Western Front, these young volunteers looked to the sky and saw the future-the airplane. The first American pilots to fight in World War One flew for the French military. France created a squadron of volunteer Americans called the Lafayette Escadrille (named after the great Marquis de Lafayette). This book is about that volunteer squadron. How they got into the French military. How they learned to fly. How they fought-and died. And how these American pilots would go down in history with other legendary flying aces, like the Red Baron and his Flying Circus.
