Description
Thoroughly illustrated with both iconic and rarely seen archival photographs, this book extensively chronicles the first years of man-powered flight, from the end of the 19th century to the era of the great Zeppelins. In an era of worldwide experimentation and change, this is the story of the pioneers and adventurers who first took humankind into the air, from Alberto Santos-Dumont, the Wright Brothers, Henry Farman, Louis Blériot, and the Baroness de Larouche to Charles Lindbergh and Amy Johnson. Here too are the consequences of aviation, including total war and casualties far beyond the battlefield, made possible by aerial bombardment. The text is in English, German, and French.
