The Encyclopedia of 20th Century Air Warfare

Overview

Aerial warfare began even before World War I, although in the early days it consisted of little more than spotting and occasionally dropping bombs. But, as Europe plunged into the terrors of the Great War, aircraft assumed ever greater importance, leading to raging fights between agile scouts such as the SE.5 Albatross D.V, Camel, Fokker DVII and SPAD.

Overview

Aerial warfare began even before World War I, although in the early days it consisted of little more than spotting and occasionally dropping bombs. But, as Europe plunged into the terrors of the Great War, aircraft assumed ever greater importance, leading to raging fights between agile scouts such as the SE.5 Albatross D.V, Camel, Fokker DVII and SPAD. It was not long before German Cotha and British Handley-Page bombers ushered in a new era of strategic air power, bombing troops and military targets.

Included within the accounts of each featured campaign are photographs, detailed artworks, first-hand experiences and comprehensive text describing the battles, the aircraft and the people involved in air warfare. From wire-braced biplanes to the first jet fighters, from the Berlin Airlift to Bosnia, The Encyclopedia of 20th Century Air Warfare is a unique history of aerial combat in the 20th century.

    Greates air warfare book ever

    This book was a great reading for any person who enjoys reading about history or is interested in military aircraft. This book shows how the past of airplanes change the out come of wars and changed the future of aircraft. This encyclopedia covers all major conflicts with aircraft and even commentaries from the pilots that flew them. Learn all about how the old aircraft of the world war days were built and designed. When the military first signed a contract with the write brothers there was an immediate race for people to want the bigger better airplane and had the world in a race to have the best airplane out there. The first war that aircraft were actually engaging one another in dog fights and making bombing runs on the enemy was in World War I. because of this new weapon aircraft changed the face of how war was fought there was finally a way to get over the enemy and bomb the factories and military targets to weaken an enemy force with out the loss of millions of men. After the ¿Great War¿ many countries including the United States began finding new ways to make aircraft more agile, mobile, and lethal this new way of thinking would lead to the death of hundreds of British civilians and soldiers when Hitler¿s Luftwaffe would fly across the English channel and bomb cities like London and Dover. In the Pacific new Japanese dive bombers would launch off of aircraft carriers and kill over 2500 soldiers and civilians at Pearl Harbor on the Hawaiian Islands. After seeing the results of these new adversaries the U.S., Russian, and Britain start designing new aircraft able to fly hundreds of miles without refueling drop bombs on the enemies homeland fly home and do it all over again. Out of this we get new jet engine air craft and pushes aviation to a new age an age of Jet planes. Because of this new age we get plane like the F-105, the F-4 and the still used B-52 bomber With this new age and dog fighting skills becoming obsolete new opportunities opened up for new young men to learn how to fly these new machines. So because of to brothers who built a rickety old airplane years ago we got the modern planes of today that fly around the world and protect this great nation from any threat. To any one who would like this kind of book go down to Barnes an Noble and pick it up.
