Book Review: The First Air War: 1914-1918

The First Air War: 1914-1918 by [Kennett, Lee]

Only a decade or so after the Wright Brothers’ first flight, the airplane went to war, which proves that when motivated by self-preservation government can move rather quickly.  While most of us pilots have a rather myopic view of the importance of the duels in the air by the likes of Rickenbacker and von Richtofen, Lee Kennett puts aviation’s role in the “War to End All Wars” into proper perspective as more of a supporting player–but certainly one that would quickly move to center stage just two decades later.  (4 of 5 Stars)
