Hall, James Norman: High Adventure. v1, 29 Apr 2009

Got this from www.richthofen.com, where it is posted with the following description:

This on-line edition of James Hall's account of aerial warfare during World War One, is based on the articles he wrote to the Atlantic Monthly during the years 1917 and 1918. The combined manuscripts, including a letter written after his capture by the Germans, were later published in book form as High Adventure.

"Jimmie Hall," as he was called, served both in the famous Lafayette Escadrille, and in the 94th pursuit squadron with Raoul Lufbery and Eddie Rickenbacker. He appears many times in Eddie Rickenbacker's book Fighting the Flying Circus. He was also considered to have been the best writer among the various pilots, with his innate sense of observation benefitting him both in the air and on paper.


Hall went on to co-write, with fellow pilot Charles Nordhoff, the famous Bounty Trilogy (also available on mobileread). They also cowrote a fictionalized version of the great war in the air called Falcons of France, which is a terrific read, and which I would be thrilled to post if somebody could point me to an electronic copy.
