Title   THE FIRST GREAT AIR WAR.

Publisher    Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1988, first edition.

Seller ID   18358

277 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0340263792 B&w photographs. "...the story of air operations during the First World War, 1914-1918, mainly on the Western Front. It was only eleven years after the Wright Brothers' fir st flight that the Royal Flying Corps set off for France and every aspect of air-fighting had to be discovered for the first time. Richard Townshend Bickers gives a fresh and challenging view of the men involved, their aircraft and the co n d i t i o n s o f war. The pilots and observers of all the combatant nations tended to be young courageous individuals, filled with a love of flying and of adventure. Their aircraft were fragile and unreliable and casualties were appallingly he av y. It w as a p e ri od of great technical advances when aerial warfare and tactical teamwork were transformed....(The author gives an account of) Lieutenant General Sir David Henderson's leading role in the formation and development of the Ro yal Fl y ing Co rps ... (an d whi le not neglecting the 'aces', he) also gives due recognition to the less famous pilots, to the usually overlooked air observers and gunners who flew in two-seater fighters, and to the crews who carried out the les s gl amor ou s bu t eq uall y im port an t re connaissance and bombing sorties...."
