FREE DOWNLOAD The First Eagles 107 An incredible history of the American WWI pilots who refused to be grounded There was a time when the United States didn’t believe in aerial warfare Wars after all were for men not flying machines When Europe went to war in the summer of 1914 the US military boasted a measly collection of five aircraft with no training programs or recruitment procedures in place But that didn’t mean the country lacked skilled pilots In fact it was just the opposite In The First Eagles award winning historian Gavin Mortimer engagingly profiles the restless determined Ame In a 2008 Common Core survey 60 percent of US students did not know the years in which World War I took place When polled in 2012 two thirds of British students did not know that the war ended in 1918 It was dubbed The Great War for a reason Never before had so many nations around the globe picked up weapons and fought Trench warfare and the use of chemical weapons left physical and psychological scars on those lucky enough to surviveBy the time the war ended four empires collapsed while large parts of France Belgium and Russia became battlefield road maps filled with crater holes and desolate cities However one of the biggest impacts of World War I was the technological advances and battlefield tactics that forever changed the face of modern warfare especially aerial warfareWhen thinking of airplanes and World War I one automatically thinks of dogfights aces usually those who have downed five or enemy planes the Red Baron and Eddie Rickenbacker Some thanks to Hollywood are even familiar with the Lafayette Escadrille the French suadron comprised of mostly American volunteer pilots On the other hand the over 240 who volunteered for the Royal Air Force are often overlooked The First Eagles The Fearless American Aces Who Flew with the RAF in World War I tells their storiesThe First EaglesAuthor Gavin Mortimer dissects the role of American airmen who volunteered to fight the Central Powers with the RAF in The First Eagles Around the start of the war the United States government and military were extremely skeptical of airplanes They believed it was both unreliable and overly dangerous Using airplanes in war would not in their opinion be a feasible option The Aviation Section of the Signal Corps was created albeit under pressure in July 1914 For the majority of the war military aviation was an unstructured mess and had many issues Because of that pilots went through Canada to volunteer for service in the RAF Mortimer retraces their career steps from volunteering to engaging in aerial warfareJust how dangerous was being an airman during this time In April 1917 also dubbed Bloody April Mortimer states that in the space of thirty days Britain s air service had lost 151 aircraft and 316 crew p 43 Their fellow British counterparts were shocked and grateful for these eager recruits though they thought these Americans had some sort of death wish Even knowing the risks involved American airmen voluntarily signed up for the RAF In doing so they helped change aerial warfare and aviation historyBook Structure ContentBroken down into twenty chapters The First Eagles is a relatively easy and short read at 240 total pages Once you become acuainted with the laundry list of people there are many and airplanes again there are many the book progresses in an orderly concise fashion Before the introduction Mortimer included a list of the flyers their date and place of birth training location and shipping date and assigned suadronThere are two appendices Appendix I is titled The Fate of the Few which details the lives of the airmen postwar The second appendix focuses on the German and Allied aircraft This is very helpful as multiple airplanes are mentioned throughout the book Readers can cross reference with Appendix II to learn about the planesMortimer placed photos within each chapter Since I m someone who loves a good photo I always think inserting images adds to the understanding of any subject Additionally by putting a name to a face it helps to personalize the story I really appreciate the photographs of the various airplanes Having little background knowledge of World War I aviation I only knew what a couple of them looked like before reading The First Eagles The shear number of different makes and models shocked meWith that said I wished that photographs were included in the description of the planes in Appendix II It would be easier to cross reference planes in one place instead of having to flip through the previous pages to find the image There are also a lot of people talked about in the book I would recommend either reading the book in one or two sittings or brushing up on the flyers list in the beginning of the book before picking up where you left off While I do not think either of these two issues take away from the book as a whole it is something to be aware of when startingOverall ImpressionThe First Eagles The Fearless American Aces Who Flew with the RAF in World War I was a fascinating read My previous knowledge of World War I aviation was close to non existent It is an area that is far complex than I realized For example I did not know that there were such a thing as aerial observers A crucial role for certain planes an aerial observer acted as a spotter and manned the gun for the pilot There were no harnesses or parachutes so if a pilot took an unexpected turn or dip the aerial observer could literally fall out of the aircraft The First Eagles stays true to its purpose telling the tale of those Americans who volunteered knowing the risks of early aerial warfare I highly recommend the book to anyone interested in World War I aviation history or general United States
