This book provides a short and succinct account of the life and combat career of Jean Navarre, France's first great fighter pilot of the First World War. A daring, intrepid pilot, Navarre was among the first Allied pilots on the Western Front to become internationally celebrated.

For anyone with a budding interest in First World War aviation, this book is a good place to learn something about the earliest days of air combat. And for the established military aviation aficionado, there's always the quality artwork within these pages of the French aircraft of Navarre's day, as well as some rare photos of the great pilot himself and his contemporaries.
