Eileen Lebow's well-documented book addresses a neglected feature of military aviation history. The Allied and German balloons were key to bringing artillery fire on enemy targets--so vital that they were constantly under attack by aircraft and artillery. The book records the American Balloon Service from enlistment to the fierce fighting that ended the war. A fascinating bonus is a look at the sacrifices our 'doughboys,' through their own words, made in order to track and destroy enemy targets. This is not only an important reference but also a thoroughly enjoyable read.”–General Bryce Poe II, USAF, retired Publisher of "Air Power History"...
