That author, Robert Sidney Bowen, was an American teenager when he flew for the Royal Air Force during World War 1. He became a journalist and author starting at the end of the war in England and later in Chicago. He was responsible for at least three series of adventures for boys plus numerous individual books built around his love of sports.
