'BALLOON IS A BUOYANT RIDE - MORE THAN JUST A LOT OF HOT AIR!'
New York Post

Inspired by true events surrounding World War I, Captain Ferguson's School for Balloon Warfare chronicles U.S. Army Captain Thomas Ferguson's struggle to turn canvas observational balloons into armed attack vehicles against Kaiser Wilhelm. Glorifying his purpose, he positions his hapless crew on the front lines where he sees both the folly of his hubris and the harsh realities of war. Captain Ferguson illuminates a period in American history not usually viewed from this angle - looking up!
