Description

The aerial duels fought over the trenches of the Western Front in World War One possess a gallant and chivalrous appeal. Later, the courageous` few', immortalized by Sir Winston Churchill, brought glory to the Spitfire and the Hurricane. The Japanese Empire was aided in its fall by the sea battles of Midway and the Coral Seas, both won through American airpower.

All these, and many other facets of war in the air, can be reproduced, literally on the table-top, by means of the methods and the rules contained in the book. In the same way the land and sea battles, described in the author's previous books, can be broadened into greater realism by the inclusion of aircraft. There are few boys today who have not made a colorful selection of the world's most famous aircraft from cheap and easily-obtainable kits. Once made, the superb models collect dust on shelves until packed away to make room for new ones. This book tells in realistic fashion how to use those models in air battles, how to dive out of the sun on to the tail of the enemy plane, or how to hold a steady course before the cry of 'Bombs Away!'

Air warfare is a young man's province in real life; the aerial battles explained in this book do not cost a single young life nor leave any widows or orphans. It is hoped that such substitutions of plastic models for madly expensive modern aircraft will become a permanent feature of our lives in the years to come.
