"Never before has there been a collection of real-life tales of aerial warfare drawn from so wide a range of sources: American, British, German, Japanese, and more. You will see firsthand what it's like to skim the clouds in wood-and-fabric biplanes with the daring young men who flew and fought by the seat of their pants; you'll climb into the cockpit of the most technologically advanced fighting machines, piloted by men of consummate skill, instinct, and intelligence. You'll sit in the bombardier's bay as flak explodes around you, experience the rush of adrenaline as a helicopter skims the treetops in battle, and take off from the swaying deck of an aircraft carrier and fly straight into a dogfight fought at the speed of sound."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
