5 Minute History: First World War in the Air
If the 100-year anniversary of the Great War has left you feeling a little under-informed, the 5 Minute History series is the perfect way to read up on this major conflict in short bursts and without pages of intricate detail. A perfect overview for the uninitiated, this book will inform and educate you even if you have never read a history book in your life. The First World War is often thought of as just being a land war with men entrenched across the Western Front, but this 'war to end all wars' was won as much at sea and in the air, as it was on land. In this accessible guide, Norman Ferguson takes you through the birth of the Royal Flying Corps and how all the major fighting powers of the war took to the skies, whether to spy on each other or to take the war to the enemy through Zeppelin attacks and bombing raids.
