Summary (from back of book):
WORLD WAR ONE COMES TO LIFE THROUGH THE DARING AND DANGEROUS EXPERIENCES OF A YOUNG PILOT
Edward Simpson's uncle builds airplanes in his barn. In exchange for help, he teaches Edward to fly, but as the boy's passion for flight grows, the world is descending into the chaos and horror of the First World War.
Edward finds his dreams of becoming a pilot now impossible to ignore. Despite his mother's protests, he heads to England and joins the Royal Flying Corps.
Edward soon discovers that his love of lying is not enough as he battles for his life in the skies over France. As he learns how to survive, he finds his friendships and beliefs tested in ways he couldn't have imagined.
Timed to coincide with the centenary of World War One, this is a skillful and gripping story of one boy's coming of age in the most extraordinary of circumstances.

The book page is also missing any mention of the series - according to the book spine, this is book #1 in the series 'Tales of War'.
