About this title


It was World War I, the time of the Red Baron, Eddie Rickenbacker, and other “knights of the air” whose high-flying exploits captured the imaginations of millions. But the reality was less romantic. In spring 1917, British squadrons lost 200 pilots a month, with pilot life expectancy a mere 11 days. No Empty Chairs tells the story of that first great air war, illustrating its devastating physical and emotional impact, as well as its extraordinary acts of heroism. Private correspondence, diaries, reports, and interviews enrich the narrative.

About the Author:

Ian Mackersey is a writer and documentary filmmaker specializing in aviation biography. He began his career as a writer for the Dominion and later the New Zealand Herald, and lived in Britain and Zambia before returning to New Zealand.
