The Two-Headed Eagle: In which Otto Prohaska takes a break as the Habsburg Empire's leading U-Boat ace and does something even more thanklessly dangerous Book 3:The Otto Prohaska Novels

It is the summer of 1916 and, as luck would have it, Naval Lieutenant Otto Prohaska is assigned to the nascent, unreliable and utterly frightening Imperial and Royal Austro-Hungarian Flying Service. Ottto's aerial chauffeur is the self-willed Sergeant-Pilot Toth, with whom he can only communicate in broken Latin -- although when all else fails, screaming will suffice!

On the ground the rickety Habsburg Empire begins to crumble before the onslaught of WWI, while in the air Otto confronts a series of misadventures and the winds of change.
