Australian Hawk Over the Western Front :
A Biography of Major R. S. Dallas DSO, DSC, C de G avec Palme ', By Adrian Hellwig
Major Roderic Dallas is Australia's leading air ace of all time and, with 48
victories, also one of the highest-scoring Commonwealth aces. Even so, until this
excellently researched volume, there has never been a full biography of this exceptional
pilot, whose fighting career spanned from 1916 to 1918. Flying Nieuport Scouts,
Triplanes and Camels with the AFC. He was an ever-present threat over the Western
Front and the scourge of the German Air Force. This book's research has been taken
principally from primary sources (Dallas' own letters, log book and service record,
in addition to squadron record books, combat reports and contemporary accounts),
and his resulting conclusions will surprise many. Here is a fitting tribute not
just to Australia's greatest war hero of the air but to a man any country would
be proud to call their own.
