  For the larger overview of the WWI air war find "The First Air War, " by Lee Kennette. That book is a great foundation of understanding the larger air war in context and separates a lot of the myth and romance from the reality. Movies for the WWI air war, I like "The Blue Max" and "The Red Baron ()". Title: Great Book of World War II Airplanes Authors: Jeffrey L. Ethell Publication date: June Format: Hardcover Our take: The title pretty much says it all. This is truly a great book of WWII airplanes. Over color photos and illustrations of WWII aircraft are contained within the pages of this tome.

Such was the American aircraft carrier from World War II to the present. One of the Navy's great sailors, Admiral James Holloway III, skillfully weaves his own naval career with that of naval aviation, U.S. policy, and diplomacy during that turbulent era .   Finally, for easy to find, cheapies with some but not a great deal of information, seek out Kenneth Munson's books - Aircraft of World War I, Bombers: Patrol & Reconnaissance Aircraft , and Fighters Attack and Training Aircraft; or the oft-reprinted Jane's Fighting Aircraft of World War 1.

  The great RAF novel of the second world war. A searing rendering of a young fighter pilot's operational life and terrible suffering in the Battle of . In a book, necessarily packed with information concerning the rapid development of aircraft which began in the last decade of the nineteenth century and was enormously stimulated during the war of all the world, the long series of early experiments with balloons must be passed over hastily.
