This month, we have 3 copies of Air Power: A Global History by Jeremy Black to be won!
The Supermarine Spitfire is one of the most iconic aircrafts in aviation history, but do you know what other means the British and their enemy forces used to wage war in the air?
Air Power: A Global History is an essential book offering a compelling and original interpretation of the rise of military aviation. Jeremy Black, one of the world’s finest scholars of military history, provides a lucid analysis of the use of airpower over land and sea both during the two world wars and the more limited wars of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
Considering both the theory and praxis of air power, the author begins with hot air balloons, and then highlights the use of zeppelins, piston engine fighters, jet bombers, and finally the so-called Military Revolution of today. While discussing the growth of American and European military aviation, Black, a pioneer in emphasizing the importance of non-Western military history for understanding global developments, also traces the emergence of air power in Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
Rowman & Littlefield agree that this book is a must-read and are therefore giving away three copies of the book for free.
