Part# 13-04016


GHOSTS of the Great War, Aviation in World War One is the fifth volume in Philip Makanna's classic series of books about aviation. "GHOSTS of The Great War" describes the sudden growth of aviation that began only ten summers after man's first flight and ended, four dark years later, with aircraft that had been hammered by war into reliable flying form. This edition of GHOSTS describes the beginnings of military aviation with Bleriot's wing-warping Model XI, Fokker's web of wires and sticks and Sopwith's simple seaplane racer. They began as sport planes and evolved in the deadly machines that swarmed over the trenches of Europe and altered the history of the world. They carried the dreams and nightmares of all mankind on their wings. Makanna's stunning color photographs of these aircraft in flight are woven with an extraordinary collection of archrival duotonnes to describe the beauty, the romance and the tragedy of military aviation's earliest days.

192 Pages Hardbound. 160 Color Photographs by Philip Makkanna. 110 Archival Black and White Photographs. 27 Drawings.
