THE GREAT ARMIES that took to the field in 1914 were vast organizations with complex battle plans but they were almost totally lacking in air services. During the four bloody years that followed, the Air Age was born.
THE FIGHTERS recounts those epic days when men first spread their wings in war.
( ... ) Never before has so much personal material been gathered together in a book on this subject.
( ... ) THE FIGHTERS is a unique record of the birth and development of fighter aviation from its earliest days of improvisation to the final massed formations in the air - the first convocation of eagles.
