Memo to the Reader :
It is a risky business to write history while the people who lived it are still around. We were aware of that when we started work on Knights of the Air. More than a thousand viators who flew in World War I are still living*, even though their war ended more than 60 years ago.
( ... ) They are magnificent men. They were the cream of their generation, and they still are -- active, clear - headed, opinionated and ready to help.
( ... ) For my own part, the fliers revived memories of my father, who served a year in France with the A.E.F. ( ... ) On a day off, midway though the book, I went digging through the attic of my mother's house and found the tunic of his World War I uniform, which had been stowed away for 40 years. ( ... ) Now the olf uniform hangs inside my office door, a reminder of our special experience with the knights of the air.

The Epic of Flight
* In 1980.
Time - Life Books Inc.
Time Life was founded in 1961, by Henry Robinson Luce ( 1898 - 1967 ), as the book division of Time Inc. It took its name from Time Inc.'s cornerstone magazines, Time and Life, but remained independent of both. Starting in 1967, Time Life combined its book offerings with music collections ( two to five records ) and packaged them as a sturdy box set. Throughout the 1970's and 1980's, the selection of books, music and videos grew and was diversified into more genres. When record labels were no longer producing vinyl albums in 1990, Time Life transitioned to CD. In the mid - 1990's, the company acquired Heartland Music, with the Heartland Music label now appearing as a brand. This company was subsequently sold off and is no longer associated with Time Life. At the end of 2003, Time Life was acquired by Ripplewood Holdings L.L.C. and ZelnickMedia Corporation to become part of Direct Holdings Worldwide L.L.C. Direct Holdings Americas Inc. operates as a leader in the sale of music and video products under the Time Life brand. Since 2003, Direct Holdings U.S. Corp. is the legal name of Time Life, and is no longer owned by its former parent Time Warner, later Time Inc. in June 9, 2014. In March 2007, Ripplewood led a group that took The Reader's Digest Association private and treated Time Life as a division of R.D.A. By 2003 onward, a disclaimer on the copyright stated that it is " not affiliated with Time Warner Inc. or Time Inc., " who owns the Time and Life magazines, which this company name came from. In 2013, Reader's Digest Association sold Time Life to Mosaic Media Investment Partners. ( source : Wikipedia )
