    very good book on development of early flight

    the book austro hungarian army aircraft of world war one is a well researched
    book on these little know aircraft of the first world war what is amazing is the
    fact that even with a minor industial base the habsburg empire produced some
    of the most revolutionary aircraft of the war such as the wkf company that produced an
    aircraft with a hexagone fusilage for arodynamic effecientcy and the worlds first
    real working helocopter austria hungary had many military inventions that were
    not only ahead of there time but superior to their allies and ememys but the
    fact that the habsburg empire had a very limited industial base this meant
    that the techological achevments could not be exploited
    but it must be remembered that some of the most brilliant minds came out
    of the austro hungarian empire
