Ghosts Book


This edition of GHOSTS describes the beginnings of military aviation with Bleriots wing-warping Model XI Fokker's web of wires and sticks and Sopwith's simple seaplane racer. They began as sport planes and evolved into the deadly machines that swarmed over the trenches of Europe and altered the history of the world. They carried the dreams and the nightmares of all mankind on their wings.
