War Bird. “Tom Sharp, crack American mail pilot, sought new adventures. Granted a leave of absence, the air man enlisted in the flying forces of the Orient and then in the Spanish Air Force. His daring and courageous flying fighting ability earned him the title of the War Bird. The Spanish war over, the War Bird enlisted with the French Flying Corps. We now find him a Captain of the Eagle Squadron, somewhere on the Western Front.” He fights against the Germanic Sermians, especially the aces Baron Bruht and Count Manfred. The War Bird appears in stories with names like “The Sermian Mystery Planes,” “Baron Bruht’s Flying Fortress,” and “Battle in Belravia.”
