50 Down 2 Left (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Bruno Stachel is is the newest pilot in a German combat squadron during World War I, but not for long, if he has anything to do with it. Before long, his blind ambition to become a war hero leads him to a downward spiral of betrayal and alcoholism.

The Blue Max is a straightforward cautionary tale, set in a relatively accurate (I think) historical context. A pretty good read, though I rather enjoyed the dogfights quite a bit more than the character breakdown.

The Blue Max
(ISBN No: 0304366803) Check NLB Catalogue for item availability.

My next book will be Blindsight by Peter Watts.
