This history of air forces worldwide traces the path from their experimental beginnings during the First World War to their decisive role during World War II. It covers every combatant nation and every type of combat plane in encyclopedic detail, including the aircraft itself, weaponry, specialist equipment developed for the transport of troops, and more. A unique survey, it shows how, once again, a new technology pushed forward man’s ability to conduct war effectively and efficiently.
