A biography of Harry Hawker MBE, AFC. "This book traces Hawker's early life, his move to England, his introduction to flying, and his role during World War I. It covers his later record-breaking exploits and his early, sad death in an accident that was mysteriously covered up in the official inquiry that followed. The book also provides fascinating insights into the problems pioneer aviators faced with courage and determination." - book jacket
