Review:

In the spring of 1917 the Royal Flying Corps was losing 200 pilots a month, with life expectancy for young flying officers standing at just 11 days. Constructed through surviving letters and diaries, this harrowing and detailed history, written by a former pilot, looks at the terrible toll that the war took on these young men embarking on a new age of warfare (CATHOLIC HERALD)

No Empty Chairs describes in vivid detail the often short lives of the young pilots of World War One... This book is one that has a very human feel, in that it does not simply look at the combat or the planes, but at the people who flew them, who risked their lives in them and who died in them. An appealing work that is both moving and efficiently accurate in its details (WARFARE MAGAZINE)

an interesting overview of the whole war... I enjoyed reading this well written and researched book... the photographs are good too (CROSS & COCKADE INTERNATIONAL)

This is a splendid addition to the literature, re-analysing with fresh, sharp eyes, and adding much (THE WESTERN FRONT ASSOCIATION STAND TO!)
