Description
Examining the evolution of air combat strategy and tactics from 1915, when machine guns were first carried aloft in World War I, aviation writers Walter Boyne and Philip Handleman here present some of the best writing on air combat. The book includes extracts from memoirs by fliers like Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, hair-raising third-person accounts of heroic feats, and a compelling work of fiction by Boyne. Here too are classic writings on the art and science of air warfare by pioneers like Billy Mitchell and Giulio Douhet, and Handleman's own essay on the future of air warfare.

"Anyone interested in the history of air warfare will treasure this wide-ranging anthology."—U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings
