Aeronautical

Ever since Icarus, man has dreamed of conquering the air in flight. Despite the visions of Leonardo Da Vinci, and the balloon experiements of the Montgolfier brothers it was only in the 20th century that this dream at last became concrete reality. Within a decade of the Wright brothers taking to the air at Kittyhawk, aircraft were being used as weapons in the First World War. The Naval and Military Press boasts a full and complete library of man's conquest of the skies from the flimsy canvas and glue stringbags that were the first aircraft, to the sophisticated, computer-driven superplanes of the 21st century. Here is the complete history of the balloon, the fighter, the bomber, the jet and unmanned drones, as well as the story of space travel. If air is your thing, then we have just the book for you!
