World War One aviators were more than just soldiers - they were the knights of the sky, and the press and public idolized the gallant young heroes. But for Stanley Woolley, commanding officer of Goshawk Squadron, the romance of chivalry in the clouds is bunk. There are two kinds of men up there: victims and murderers, and the code he drums into his men bars any notion of sport or fair play. His unpopular method works, but even so Woolley believes the whole squadron will be dead within three months.
