In their own words
Watched "Flyboys" from our Nexflix account last week. I liked the movie, and as I was looking into the Lafayette Escadrille, I found somewhere that there was a first hand account of US volunteer flying by James R. McConnell at Project Gutenberg. The account it not very long, because his life was cut short. But, at the end are some letters from his squadron-mates about his death and the morale of the pilots after.
