It began during the end of the old west of Phoenix Arizona 19 May 1897 and ended on a meadow near Murvaux, France on 29 September 1918. So went the life of the Medal of Honor winner Lt. Frank Luke of the 27th Aero Sqdn AEF. It was only after the war to end all wars that the story came to light. Now 91 years later this detailed account of the life and times and death of Lt. Luke comes to light But is the book all its cracked up to be?

I will hold this manuscript under the microscope and discuss the realities of the writer's attempt. Why would I do this? My name is mentioned in the book at several points and I promised the writer I would be as candid as I can."
