In 1914 a new breed of fighting man came into being, whose individual courage and style were reminiscent of the age of chivalry. This was the aerial duelist; his arena was the air over the Western Front. He fought first with rifle in hand, later with mounted machine guns. He was fearless. Here is the history of the French Aces of World War I; the playboy, Jean Marie Dominique Navarre, Georges Felix Madon, Guynemer and Nungesser and several American fighter pilots including the only American Negro to fly in combat during the First World War, Eugene Bullard.
