About the Author

Arthur Gould Lee was born in 1894 and served in the Sherwood Foresters, RFC, and RAF from 1915 to 1946 when he retired as an air vice-marshal. He took up writing on retirement from the RAF and published eight nonfiction books, all of which have become classics in aviation nonfiction.


`Open Cockpit is a great read, and generously illustrated with a mix of well-known images, and the author's own album snaps to add a personal touch. For a gripping first-hand account of what flying and fighting in WWI was all about, this one has few peers and it is good to see a new edition available for a fresh generation of enthusiasts..' WINDSOCK; `Most enjoyable book... A welcome reprint.' The Aviation Historian; `Without a doubt, this is a classic account of the air war over the Western Front.' Britain at War; `There are some books which deserve a place on the shelves of anyone with an interest in WWI aviation and this is one of them.' Cross & Cockade International; `A superb account. 10/10' The Great War; `Grub Street has really done the bookshelves of WWI aviation enthusiasts a favour here. This is a must-own book. I would encourage anyone to get this very readable book while they can. You won't be disappointed with the purchase and I can promise you that you will read it more than once.' WWI Aero
