From the moment man learned how to ascend off the ground, the strategic significance of air intelligence became apparent. This relatively new discipline―the first dedicated air reconnaissance missions were undertaken in 1870 during the siege of Paris when tethered French balloons were employed to spot enemy positions and direct artillery fire onto them―has developed at an astonishing speed. Over the past century air intelligence has moved from hazardous observation balloons to micro-circuitry, which can send pictures from a video camera mounted on a remotely-controlled vehicle the size of a hummingbird.

The Historical Dictionary of Air Intelligence relates the evolving history of the rapidly advancing field of air intelligence. A chronology, an introductory essay, and cross-referenced dictionary entries on the agencies, agents, operations, equipment, tradecraft, and jargon of air intelligence make this reference as essential as it is fascinating.

About the Author:

Glenmore S. Trenear-Harvey heads Intel Research based in London and lectures across the globe. His involvement with the intelligence subject dates back to his days as a pilot with the Royal Air Force.

Review:

The Historical Dictionary of Air Intelligence is a good introduction to this historically significant topic whose importance will continue growing. (American Reference Books Annual)

This is a subject of great significance for aviation history and more widely in military and political history....Glenmore Trenear-Harvey is well suited as author of this dictionary....The contents of this dictionary are wide-ranging, pretty comprehensive and above all, accurate....a valuable resource in an under-published subject....This is an excellent survey of a still sometimes difficult subject; its author is privy to probably more informatin than most people and he has produced a wide ranging and balanced dictionary on a subject of considerable significance for twentieth-century military and geo-political history. (Stuart James, 2010 "American Reference Books Annual")

Author Trenear-Harvey...is recognized as an air intelligence expert....This is an excellent source for academic libraries, particularly for those with studies in military history, and for large public libraries. Scholars and lay readers alike will enjoy it. (Booklist, September 2009)
