FROM FLEDGLINGS TO FIRST U.S. FIGHTER SQUADRON ON WESTERN FRONT

First to the Front: The Aerial Adventures of 1st Lt. Waldo Heinrichs and the 95th Aero Squadron 1917-1918 (Schiffer Military History) - Charles Woolley

This book offers a rich and fascinating story --- told largely through diary entries made by Lt. Waldo Heinrichs during his service with the 95th Aero Squadron, from excerpts of letters from some of Heinrichs' fellow pilots, and from the squadron's Official History --- of the first U.S. fighter squadron to see combat on the Western Front. 

Heinrichs also sheds light on the type of flight training he received in France. On the whole, a very well-structured and readable book.
