Overview

World War II was perhaps the first major global conflict to feature aerial warfare on a massive scale. From the Battle of Britain to the dropping of the Atomic Bombs, the aerial fighter proved a large part of the story of the world's deadliest conflict. Air Raids—Epic Assaults of WWII is a comprehensive exploration of just how the war was won and lost in the skies above Europe and the Pacific. Author Kim Lockwood details the major air forces and their capabilities, the key dates and events, the pilots, and especially the machinery they flew day and night.
