Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

  1. There is another fantastic book about American air power. It is a biography of our nations second highest scoring ace: William C Lambert. The book is by Professor Sam Wilson and the book is titled Bill Lambert: World War One Flying Ace. Available on Amazon.
