WWI aviators have long been collected, traded,
and reproduced, but no author until now has
focused on determining when, where, why, and

and why they were issued as postcards. This
work pursues the answers to those questions,
and unfolds like a detective story that relates
the investigation and assembly of evidence
from a wide variety of sources.

determining when, where, why, and by whom
these pictures were taken, or when and why
they were issued as postcards.
