The Lovereading4Kids comment
War in the air was a dangerous but thrilling experience for the young men who risked their lives in the new fangled aeroplanes. When Alfred’s skill with a camera is spotted during training he is sent off to join the brave young pilots in the Royal Flying Corp so that he can take photographs from behind the German lines and bring back vital information. In his diary to his sister Alfred brings to life the excitement and the terrible danger of these missions and the amazing bravery of the young men who carried them out.

The Last Flight by Terry Deary
France 1917 - the war in the air. An air observer is shot down behind enemy lines and meets the German flying ace, the famous Red Baron. Photographer Alfred Adams was born 1 June 1896 and became an observer in WW1, taking pictures over enemy lines. He was shot down by the famous 'Red Baron' Manfred von Richthofen over France along with his pilot Donald Stewart on 5 April 1917. They landed across enemy lines and both survived as prisoners of war. The tale tells how Alfred ended up spending his 21st birthday in a German prisoner of war camp, where he was visited by the Red Baron himself.
The master historical storyteller gives readers aged 7+ a fascinating look at the First World War in the air, from both sides.
A riveting read for age nine and upwards. Irish Examiner
It's an interesting insight into both sides of the War and of course, is a well-written story.
... An excellent series. Parents in Touch
