“Before your time. Back in 1870—the first air mail.”

During the Siege of Paris in 1870, at the height of the Franco-Prussian War, a group of airmen battled Prussian forces in war-torn France. Led by Giraud: everyone in the service knew Giraud, the Early Bird, the best test pilot going. Born a Frenchman, Giraud was one of the Grand Old Men of the air: an Early Bird, a magnificent training and test pilot. He had positively forgotten more about the air than the rest knew.

The Beginning of Air Mail is a previously-unreprinted historical saga from the pen of “the King of the Pulps,” H. Bedford-Jones, who authored 25 million words of fiction over his career.
