First published in 1973, Aces High is the vivid chronicle of aerial warfare during World War One.

Clark gives a gripping account of the flying aces – Manfred von Richthofen (the Red Baron), Mick Mannock, Rene Fonck, Georges Guynemer, Albert Ball – whose life expectancy was measured in days: they were forbidden to carry parachutes; they lived in dread of being shot down in flames.
