ABOUT THIS BOOK
From the frail biplanes which whirled and fought over the trenches of France, aircraft have been transformed into sophisticated, supersonic jets, capable of delivering a nuclear strike to any part of the world.
This is the history of that development - a lavishly illustrated account of the men, the aircraft and the actions which have revolutionized the concept of warfare. Each chapter is devoted to an actual air battle, chosen to illustrate the many military roles which aircraft have played.
( ... ) This is a book which conveys the special nature of air battles. Battles no less horrible than others, but fought at lightning pace above the clouds, where death strikes in the blinking of an eye. Vividly, in words and pictures, this book captures the " feel " of those conflicts - the courage and the horrors, the men and the machines, the planning and the actions, which make up the history of war in the air.
