The Aviation News
BILLY MITCHELL, by Emile Gauvreau and Lester Cohen. Published by E. P. Dutton & Company, Inc., New York. 306 pages. $2.50. To say there is never a dull moment in this book, even when it repeats itself, would be understatement. Like the bombs dropped from Gen. William (Billy) Mitchell’s old DH planes that sank the war-prize German battleship Ostfriesland off the Virginia Capes back in 1921, this story of Mitchell’s stormy career might be characterized as TNT.
