"They were the first and the last, and their exploits have been virtually lost to Canadian history," writes aviation historian and WWII Canadian air gunner Norm Shannon. Albert Prince was killed in action five days before his country declared war in 1939. Hammy Gray was shot down in a daring attack six days before the of the Pacific War in 1945. That afternoon, Lt. Gerald Anderson of Trenton died trying to land a crippled aircraft on Gray's carrier.

This 224-page book provides readers with a fascinating collection of events that highlight the impressive place Canadians hold in military aviation history. Shannon recounts the role Canadians played in aerial warfare from the days of first flight at Baddeck, NS, through the First and Second World Wars to Korea.
