Once a Knight: A Novel of Aerial Combat & Romance in World War I (Dawn of Aviation)
Everett Ross often feels like a fish out of water, an ex-Texas Ranger who traded his horse and six-gun for the cockpit of a pursuit aircraft in the British Royal Flying Corps. Through his inimitable West Texas narrative, Ross thrills the reader with a riveting tale of authentic aerial combat in the skies above the stalemated trenches of World War I. On the ground, Ross, who speaks no French, pursues the enchanting Geneviève, who speaks no English. Despite their torrid and frenetic passion, the war rips them apart, and Ross plunges behind enemy lines in a desperate gamble to rescue her.
