This is a long awaited and monumental work, the product of forty years research, and sadly published after the author’s death. The first Volume is a chronological order of events between 1910 and 1917, written mostly as a diary; the second is a record of victories, losses and awards. Both give testimoney to painstaking work over a very long period. What more can I say? There must be everything known about the subject in these two books.

The paper and binding are of the usual high Schiffer standard, printed in China, which may account for some transposed captions to illustrations, and some rather odd English at times. Many of the photographs (some duplicated) are of unidentified Russian airmen, but there are some gorgeous shots of Il’ya Muromets and other machines both Russian and imported. Do not be put off by my criticism – this is valuable history, a classic reference work, a masterpiece and well worth the money.
