An anthology of some of the century's best writing from around the world on air combat, divided into six sections spanning the history of military aviation, from WWI to the Persian Gulf War. There is also a section on the art and science of air warfare. Each of the 28 excerpts is introduced and placed into historical and technical context, with explanations for the layperson of some of the more arcane aspects of military aviation. Includes first-person memoirs and third-person accounts, plus one work of fiction, as well as excerpts of documents. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
