Description
As much as the aircraft itself revolutionized warfare in World War II, aerial reconnaissance played a vital role in the strategies of Allied and Axis armies, including acquiring targets before the battle and assessing the damage done after. Illustrated throughout with reconnaissance photos as well as flight maps, photos taken during the fighting, airfield photos, and other archival images, this book pays tribute both to the daring pilots who risked anti-aircraft fire and enemy fighters to obtain their precious evidence and to the photographic interpreters who pioneered a totally new science to decode the miniscule images that the photos contained. Among the operations spotlighted here are the aerial reconnaissance that led to the airborne assault on the Italian fleet at Taranto, the hunt for the supposedly unsinkable Bismarck, the Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor (one of the few times Japan made use of aerial reconnaissance), and the RAF Dam Busters' raid on the Ruhr River dams.
