Air Power: The Men, Machines, and Ideas That Revolutionized War, from Kitty Hawk to Iraq by Stephen Budiansky

Soaring over the battlefield and the men in the trenches, the airplane within a few years was predicted to become an unstoppable force that left no spot on earth safe from attack-eventually forever changing the very nature of war. Drawing on combat memoirs, letters, diaries, archival records, museum collections, and eyewitness accounts by the men who fought-and the men who developed the breakthrough inventions-acclaimed author Stephen Budiansky weaves a vivid and dramatic account of the airplanes revolutionary transformation of modern warfare. It is an epic history, both illuminating and sobering, of the inspiration and development, successes, and limitations of the airplane as the ultimate weapon of war. Book jacket.
