Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
World War II was fought in theaters across the globe. One of those theaters was in the air as Allied airmen fought against Japanese and German foes. During World War II, bombers fought their way into enemy territory and devastated cities. Ground support aircraft such as the German Stuka spread terror in ground troops and smashed tanks. Fighter aircraft such as the Spitfire, Messerschmitt, Mustang, and Zero not only played a major role in the air war but also became legendary in their own right. By the end of the war cities lay in ruins, thousands of planes had been shot down, and tens of thousands of airmen had perished all as part of a concerted effort to control the skies. In this illustrated work readers are provided snapshot chapters of the individual aircraft, campaigns, and strategies that made up this important aspect of World War Two. Hamilton's thoughtful text and the numerous photos of aircraft combine to provide readers with a sound introduction to an important facet of World War Two. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
