Ever wonder why flying circuses of huge numbers of planes grew up in the first world war. Why did airforces forget the reasons in World war two and have to relearn the power of the big wing formation in the battle of Britain? Why do modern jets fight in pairs? This book is a well written run through the broad history of air combat showing why certain tactics developed. It covers air engagements from the First World War up to Vietnam. It is written in a non-technical and non-military way which is appealing to the layman, but the strategic analysis is excellent.

Air Vice-Marshall Johnson was the top-scoring Allied fighter pilot of WW II, and an exchange pilot with the USAF in Korea. His narrative chronicles the achievements of the great fighter pilots of both wars.

The author's analysis of aerial strategy is full of thrilling first-hand accounts by legendary aces such as Oswald Boelcke, Manfred von Richthofen, Douglas Bader, Adolf Galland, Werner Molders, Robin Olds, Don Blackslee Please click here to ask a question
