Synopsis by Sally Barber
Age of Flight, a 12-volume series, presents a comprehensive history of aviation, from man's earliest attempts to conquer the wild blue yonder to the development of sophisticated experimental crafts and advanced technology. Archival photography and aerial footage illustrate the fascinating stories of the men, women, and events that defined the evolution of flight. Volume two, Age of Flight: Bombers, documents the move joining bombs and aircraft, as well as the impact this measure had on how wars were fought. Film highlights examine how balloons and zeppelins were employed to drop bombs and the introduction of the first bombers in 1921.
