By Clark Alan

Aces High serves to remind us that, if now not a wholly scrupulous baby-kisser, nor an ideal husband, Alan Clark fairly used to be an exceptional army historian.

There has advanced whatever of a fantasy in regards to the conflict within the air among 1914-1918. the parable is going that, whereas within the dust and gore of the trenches under any idealism and chivalry speedy sputtered and died, within the purer air above the final noble heroes battled in one-to-one dogfights like knights of previous. it's a delusion that Clark shoots down in flames, with attribute iconoclasm.

One of the nice RFC aces used to be Mick Mannock, famed for his stumble upon with a coaching teacher, out in a formation of six, with 5 of his very green-horned scholars. Mannock first shot down the trainer after which ruthlessly pursued all of the newcomers and shot them down one after the other. This wasn't chivalry, it used to be struggle, and even supposing extra based to monitor, it was once every piece as deadly as Passchendaele.
