octavo, (222)pp. With a Foreword by Commodore Keith Eames, Commander Australian Navy Aviation Group. With 16pp. of photographs. Major Roderick Dallas is Australia’s leading air ace of all time and, with fifty victories, also one of the highest-scoring Commonwealth aces. Until this excellently researched volume, there has never been a full biography of this exceptional pilot, whose fighting career spanned from 1916 to 1918. Flying Nieuport Scouts, Triplanes and Camels with the RNAS and RAF, he was an ever-present threat over the Western Front and the scourge of the German Air Force. Hellwig’s book has been taken principally from primary sources (Dallas’ own letters, log book and service record, in addition to squadron record books, combat reports and contemporary accounts), and his resulting conclusions will surprise many. A fitting tribute not just to Australia’s greatest war hero of the air but to a man any country would be proud to call their own. Adrian Hellwig has had articles published previously in Cross & Cockade International, Over the Front, and the Australian Association of WWI Aero Historian’s Journal. As new. blue boards in pictorial dust jacket. N° de réf. du libraire 18039
