An excellent account of the experiences of a Russian pilot at the end of World War One and during the Russian revolution. Alexander Riaboff was luckier than most Russians in that he seemed to inadvertently avoid several orders or moves that would have led to his death. He finally made it out to China where his first daughter was born. They then emigrated to the U.S. where he trained and became a successful lawyer. He finally got back to Moscow in 1960 to see his surviving family members. A compelling human interest story as the book actually contains little combat action. But it is a snapshot look at the chaotic time as the Great War ends and the Russian Revolution and Civil War begin in earnest. Very enlightening.
