The Influence of Air Power Upon History Walter J. Boyne 2005-02-01 From the New York Times-bestselling author,an analysis of how flight has shaped warfare, politics, diplomacy, technology, and mass culture. In this book, Walter Boyne—former Air Force pilot and director of the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum—examines the application of air power from the earliest days of the balloon down to the current era of space warfare, and postulates some startling new theories. The author unerringly depicts the contributions made by the people and planes of each era, some of them famous, some virtually unknown, but all vitally important. He highlights the critical competence of individuals at every step of the way, comparing the works of Guilio Douhet, William Mitchell, John Warden, and others philosophically, even as he compares the combat capabilities of leaders such as Hugh Trenchard, Bomber Harris, Herman Goering, Curtis LeMay, and Henry “Hap” Arnold. Aircraft, their weapons, and their employment are given equal treatment, and Boyne shares controversial, thought-provoking views on World War II bombings and air power in the Vietnam War.

India V. S. Naipaul 2011-03-22 A New York Times Notable Book Nobel laureate V. S. Naipaul’s impassioned and prescient travelogue of his journeys through his ancestral homeland, with a new preface by the author. Arising out of Naipaul’s lifelong obsession and passion for a country that is at once his and totally alien, India: A Million Mutinies Now relates the stories of many of the people he met traveling there more than fifty years ago. He explores how they have been steered by the innumerable frictions present in Indian society—the contradictions and compromises of religious faith, the whim and chaos of random political forces. This book represents Naipaul’s last word on his homeland, complementing his two other India travelogues, An Area of Darkness and India: A Wounded Civilization.

The Origin of the Fighter Aircraft Jon Guttman 2009 When World War I began in August 1914, the airplane had already proven its worth as an intelligence gathering "eye-in-the-sky". These scouting aircraft soon become indispensible and the race to incorporate air superiority into battlefield strategy began in earnest. By the end of 1915, the first true fighter aircraft began to take to the skies. Between 1916 and early 1918, armies on both sides of the conflict began to rely more and more on air superiority, and by 1918 air battles could be as sprawling as those on the ground. The Origin of the Fighter Aircraft tells the fascinating story of how one of the world's most amazing inventions became an integral component of modern warfare.

Before Amelia Eileen F. Lebow 2011-07-01 Before Amelia is the remarkable story of the worldas women pioneer aviators who braved the skies during the early days of flight. While most books have only examined the women aviators of a single country, Eileen Lebow looks at an international spectrum of pilots and their influence on each other. The story begins with Raymonde de Laroche, a French woman who became the first licensed female pilot in 1909. De Laroche, Lydia Zvereva, Melli Beese, Hilda Hewlitt, Harriet Quimby, and the other women pilots profiled here rose above contemporary gender stereotypes and proved their ability to fly the temperamental heavier-than-air contraptions of the day. Lebow provides excellent descriptions of the dangers and challenges of early flight. Crashes and broken bones were common, and many of the pioneers lost their lives. But these women were adventurers at heart. In an era when womenas professional options were severely limited and the mere sight of ladies wearing pants caused a sensation, these women succeeded as pilots, flight instructors, airplane designers, stunt performers, and promoters. This book fills a large void in the history of the first two decades of flight."

Ronny Barr Profiles Ronny Bar 2021-05-12 Artist Ronny Bar, a member of director Sir Peter Jackson's New Zealand-based Wingnut Wings team, presents the first collection of his astonishingly detailed First World War aircraft profiles - British Two-Seaters of the Great War. Two-seater aircraft were the workhorses of the Royal Flying Corps and from 1918 the Royal Air Force, operated in a wide variety of roles such as training, artillery spotting, reconnaissance, communications, coastal patrol and even bombing. Some, such as the B.E.2c and R.E.8, became notorious while others such as the Bristol F.2B fighter proved popular and reliable. What they lacked in glamour and aesthetic appeal, these aircraft made up for with their purposeful looks, practical design and do-it-all usefulness over the battlefield. This book features 260 meticulously researched profiles of the war's most important and iconic British two-seaters: the Royal Aircraft Factory B.E.2a to B.E.2g, F.E.2b, F.E.2d and R.E.8; Avro 504, Vickers F.B.5, Sopwith 11/2 Strutter, Armstrong Whitworth F.K.8, Bristol F.2B and Airco DH.4, DH.9 and DH.9A.
Canada's Flying Heritage Frank H. Ellis 1980 This book not only records the significant events of Canadian aviation but also pays tribute to the 'forgotten flyers who flew by guess and by God or with calculating caution - for the sheer love of flying - in the early days.' The opening chapter recounts the first tentative experiments with that overgrown monster, the flying machine - at this stage, the glider. Next come the Barnstormers, the first professional airmen, trying desperately to wrest a living from the air, pioneering in the field of practical flying as little more than vaudeville performers. These were the days of daring aero-acrobatics and tense and crowded air-meets. The First World War saw a tremendous advance in technical manoeuvres and in pilot skill; the first aviation school was established in Toronto, where the War Birds learned to fly. An unparallelled boom in aviation followed the war. Public interest had been aroused by the celebrated achievement of Canada's Air Force, and many young men, the restlessness of the war still in them, were obsessed by the itch to fly again. The dollar-a-minute days marked the beginning of passenger travel and a steady increase in experimental flying, to bear its practical fruit in days to come. The next chapter is one of heroic enterprise - the conquest of the Atlantic and the spanning of the Continent. No less epic is the history of the bush pilots who tamed the Canadian North. We must be grateful to Mr. Ellis for rescuing from obscurity this important chapter in our history.

Yvain Chretien de Troyes 1987-09-10 The twelfth-century French poet Chrétien de Troyes is a major figure in European literature. His courtly romances fathered the Arthurian tradition and influenced countless other poets in England as well as on the continent. Yet because of the difficulty of capturing his swift-moving style in translation, English-speaking audiences are largely unfamiliar with the pleasures of reading his poems. Now, for the first time, an experienced translator of medieval verse who is himself a poet provides a translation of Chrétien’s major poem, Yvain, in verse that fully and satisfyingly captures the movement, the sense, and the spirit of the Old French original. Yvain is a courtly romance with a moral tenor; it is ironic and sometimes bawdy; the poetry is crisp and vivid. In addition, the psychological and the socio-historical perceptions of the poem are of profound literary and historical importance, for it evokes the emotions and the values of a flourishing, vibrant medieval past.
