The Britain at War team scout out the latest items of interest
BLOODY APRIL 1917
Norman Franks, Russell Guest & Frank Bailey
Publisher: Grub Street
Softback: 184 pages
THE NAME of Norman Franks on any aviation title, most especially related to the First World War, is surely the stamp of authority and the guarantee of solidly researched and presented facts. And in this particular title, the principal author does not disappoint when he is joined by fellow specialists, Australian researcher Russell Guest and American writer, Frank Bailey. Whilst this is a partial re-print of Volume 1 of Bloody April – Black September (also by Grub Street, 1995), its publication now, in this format, is certainly timely on the centenary of those events during that calamitous April one hundred years ago.
