Riassunto: Captain Will Turner, an Anglo-American serving in the Royal Flying Corps before the United States enters the First World War on the Allied side, is part of the hastily-formed Home Defence organization combating the Zeppelin night raids on England in the spring and summer of 1916. The German airships have ranged across the country invulnerable to all forms of defense. Only one Zeppelin, LZ37, has been destroyed in the air, bombed while coming in to land near Ghent in Belgium by Flight Sub Lieutenant Warneford in his Morane monoplane. This single success, combined with the lack of results achieved with machine gun-equipped airplanes, has led to the mistaken belief in the British High Command that an airship can only be destroyed by bombing from above. They are convinced the Germans are using a system to duct spent exhaust gases around the highly flammable gasbags to prevent fire. Will Turner, by now an experienced military aviator after nearly two years service, knows this theory is flawed. A qualified and farsighted aeronautical engineer, it falls to him to penetrate to the heart of the Kaiser s Imperial Naval Air Service to obtain the evidence needed to change British tactics.
L'autore: Chris Davey has been involved with aviation all his life. His first flight was in a Royal Air Force de Havilland Chipmunk as a young Air Cadet with the British Air Training Corps. It was while a member of this organization that he was selected to join the International Air Cadet Exchange and traveled to the U.S. as part of the British contingent as guests of the United States Air Force and the Civil Air Patrol. This visit established friendships that continue to this day, and a connection with the U.S. that ultimately led to the Will Turner aviation fiction series being published by Lucky Press, LLC of Ohio. Chris is an active member of the de Havilland Moth Club, helping to organize their events in the UK, and also of the Cambridge Flying Group, a unique organization still training pilots using the Tiger Moth biplane. He has been an EAA member since 1994. Having established a successful business, Chris found himself in the fortunate position of being able to start training toward his PPL on the Tiger Moth. With a first solo finally in sight, he went for his medical confident he was in good shape, only to find he had a serious heart defect requiring immediate life-saving surgery. Now fully recovered and with his medical at last issued, Chris has the perfect answer for those who argue that flying is dangerous: it saved his life.
