Air Wars

This is an annotated bibliography of the most comprehensive and definitive printed reference works on air combat operations since the dawn of flight. All conflicts which involved the use of aircraft are included, even if the aircraft only flew reconnaissance or support missions.

Emphasis is placed equally on the evolution and development of strategy and tactics, and on the day-by-day operations of front-line units. From these titles you should be able to find a details on just-about any air combat operation flown. Suggestions for additional titles are welcome.

Where possible, this listing gives priority to those titles which seek to reconcile the air combat claims and losses of BOTH sides, rather than those which regurgitate pilot's reports verbatim.

The operations by individual air forces in any given conflict are normally listed under the relevant air force in the individual 'country' bibliographies.
