Description

Description

This describes the career of Albert Ball, a young English pilot from Nottingham who was eventually awarded the Victoria Cross for his courage. Ball was killed in combat with Lothar Von Richthofen (brother of the “Red Baron”), who was controversially given credit for shooting down the British ace, when evidence suggests Ball became disorientated in cloud and crashed his own aircraft rather than being shot down by enemy fire. 224pp
