Sagittarius Rising

Cecil Lewis / John Telfer
Sent to France with the Royal Flying Corps at just 17 and later a member of the famous 56 Squadron Cecil Lewis was an illustrious and passionate fighter pilot of the First World War described by Bernard Shaw in 1935 as 'a thinker a master of words and a bit of a poet'. In this vivid and spirited account the author evocatively sets his love of the skies and flying against his bitter experience of the horrors of war. We then follow his progress from France and the battlefields of the Somme to his pioneering defence of London against deadly nighttime raids.
