The League of World War I Aviation Historians is a non-profit organization whose goals include the accumulation, preservation, and publication of factual data concerning aerial activity of World War I. It was establishd in April 1985, upon the closure of the US branch of Cross & Cockade. 'Over The Front' is a quarterly journal, 8.5 x 11 inches in size, on acid-free, archival paper, packed with the finest research written by the world's leading WWI aviation historians. From personal accounts of those involved in the war, preserved for their decendents, to squadron histories, to analytical papers, to technical information about the aircraft and aerial weapons used in the war (including vast amounts of color and markings information for the aircraft modeller), and more, each 96-page issue of 'Over The Front' is packed with information on aerial conflict in its pioneer days. The first issue published in Spring 1986.
