Bert Hall was one of the first seven pilots to join the Lafayette Escardrille. His account of that famous squadron is a hard-boiled story of the events he experienced and the people he met during the greater part of World War I. Hall was sent to Russia just prior to the Revolution to help the Czarist air forces. He was decorated by the Czar and the Grand Duke Nicholas. Later, by way of Siberia and the United States, he returned to the European Front. This account is largely extracted from Hall's diary. See Halls bibliography "War Books" p. 203.
