Anyone here ever read Iron Men with Wooden Wings?

Recommended Posts



Yes Bruce, I read it once way back in the late 1960's shortly after it came out. Fun little bit of historically based fiction as I recall. If you don't already have one and would like to get a start on your own WWI electronic library, here is a link to a zip download I put together some time back:

Never read that one but was just going to post an offer. I just finished Sagitarrius Rising by Cecil Lewis. Anyone in the USA (sorry you fellows across the sea) have a a book to trade? I love a good fiction based on at least some facts and have read a quite a few but there must be something I haven't read. Wew could just do an exchange. My book is paperback and all I would ask is that the book you send me wouldn't have pages falling out as it opens. So will wait to here either here or a PM. I won't be checking back on for a while but will take the first offer of a book that sounds interesting that Ii haven't read. Remember, I prefer fiction and not interested at all in the non fiction unless it has a LOT OF FLYING.. Thanks
