A classic memoir of WWI flying, Wind in the Wires paints a vivid picture of early war training and combat, especially with the Maurice Farman Shorthorn and the Bristol BE2. After having been forced down and captured, Grinnell-Milne returns to the front to fly late in the war with the famed 56 Squadron, flying the SE5a. The author’s eye for detail, sense of humor, and his truly hair-raising experiences make this a charming and riveting read to rank with the greats of Cecil Lewis, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Arthur Gould Lee.

Review:

Grinnell-Milne’s moving tale provides a singular perspective on air fighting, at the leading and trailing edges of the first air war, while being a “guest of the Kaiser” in between. Readers are highly encouraged to add this unique work to their bookshelves. (Over The Front Winter 2016)
