Eight Bells Lecture Series
At the Naval War College Museum:
20 February, 2014: Hero of the Angry Sky: The World War I Diary and Letters of David S. Ingalls, America's First Naval Ace with Geoffrey L. Rossano and William F. Trimble
Hero of the Angry Sky draws on the unpublished diaries, correspondence, informal memoir, and othe personal documents of the U.S.Navy's only flying "Ace" of World of World War I to tell his unique story. This edited collection of Ingall's writing details the career of the U.S.Navy's most successful combat flyer from that conflict. While Ingall's wartime experiences are compelling at a personal level, they illuminate the larger, but still relatively unexplored realm of early U.S. naval aviation.
