The Soft Mud of France is the inaugural work of Gregory Vail, a local area resident, who recently transplanted from Laguna Beach, California, back to his family’s 1765 Danby roots, some of which are described in the book. Vail was able to complete this work in the tranquility of Rupert. The book, released on March 8, 2023, is available at Amazon or Aeronaut Books. Since its publication, the work has ranked at or near the top of Amazon’s dozens of aviation history new releases.
Soft Mud is the story of Greg’s World War I fighter pilot father, 1st Lt. William Vail of the 95th Aero Squadron in 1918 France and 64 consequential years of his life thereafter. Greg is Lt. Vail’s only son and one of the few surviving direct offspring of World War aviators.
