World War II From Above - An Aerial View of the Global Conflict
Author: Jeremy Harwood
Format: Hardcover
Condition: Good, dust jacket quite turned up at edges

In World War II From Above, historian Jeremy Harwood profiles the fascinating story, unknown to many, of the battle waged by Allies and Axis spies in the skies to obtain accurate aerial intelligence during World War II. This book features dozens of eye-catching aerial reconnaissance photographs drawn from the archives compiled by all the major fighting powers. Hardwood's accompanying text profiles the daring pilots who risked death to shoot these photographs and the photographic interpreters who pioneered a totally new science to reveal the secrets they contained. Inspiring, informative, and entertaining special features focus on particularly crucial operations from both the Allies and Axis perspectives - from the American Doolittle Raid against Japan to the numerous battles against Germany's cutting-edge U-boats to the Battle of Monte Cassino and a score of other epic campaigns. Told through photographs that have largely never before appeared in print, outside of their reconnaissance origins, World War II From Above combines history with photography, placing the reader in the midst of the action like few books ever have.
