complex. Only a little more than ten years after the Wright Brothers first flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903, planes were used as weapons of war, starting with World War I. But military aircraft played an even bigger role in the battles of World War II as bombers let loose their deadly cargo and fighter planes fought for control of the skies.

After World War II and the onset of the Cold War, spy planes ran covert missions, and during the Vietnam conflict, combat helicopters were heavily used because of their versatility. Young readers will discover how each type of aircraft -- including U.S., Canadian, Soviet, and European models -- were designed and used, along with the technical advances that have been incorporated for modern warfare. Each book contains an index, bibliography, glossary.
