One expects WWI air combat to be much more exciting than is presented here. This is not a novel or a history but a daily journal of a bombardier. Not much happens here. Green Balls refers to German anti-aircraft fire which little threatens the author. The greatest peril results more from mechanical troubles than the enemy. The narrator's Cockney voice is also ill suited to what one expects of British officer. Very disappointed.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
This book gives a very good insight into the men carrying out a new type of warfare, not previously experienced.
Unfortunately, if you are looking for a First World War book detailing technical and logistical aspects of the first heavy bomber campaigns, this book isn't for you.
I didn't get past the fourth chapter and found the narrative way too flowery and uninspiring.
What a shame.
