The War in the Air
The story of a Britisher who, by a freak accident, becomes sucked up in the beginnings of a World War that starts and ends in England (for him) but takes a detour to America. This war involves dirigibles and early aircraft, some of which fly by flapping their wings. Chapter six contains an interesting and timely description of New York city. An insightful rendering of human nature and warfare with, in light of modern knowledge, obvious flaws regarding science. Worth reading at least once. --Submitted by Bruce H.
