World War I Aviator. He was a famed African American combat pilot of World War I, known as "The Black Swallow of Death." He trained and flew with the French Army and is thought to have downed at least two German aircraft during the war. Regarded by the French as a national hero, Bullard stayed in France after the First World War. He married a French countess, served as a band leader and operated successful businesses. He returned to the United States to avoid possible capture after being wounded fighting the Nazis with French underground resistance forces during the Second World War.
