ABSTRACT
This article focuses on U.S. Captain Eddie Rickenbacker. He shot down 26 enemy aircraft in the World War I and earned the Medal of Honor for his actions. His feats, and those of other Allied fliers, ushered in an era of air-to-air combat that changed the role of aircraft in military operations forever, and helped establish the need for control of the air during wartime.
