The colossal impact and effect of World War 1 has provided a historical watershed of which almost every aspect has been studied and revised. Yet there is one aspect that has remained an enigma—air power. War Over the Trenches is the first internationally researched study to portray how air power really evolved and how it was used to support armies during the massive and devastating battles on the Western Front. E.R. Hooton examines how air power was deployed en masse for the first time over Verdun and its subsequent use over the Somme in the second half of 1916 and how reconnaissance and measures of cooperation with artillery were developed and refined. War Over the Trenches is based on exhaustive research conducted in archives in France, Belgium, the UK, and the USA and includes German material that has never before been published. It provides the most insightful, exciting, and radical reassessment of World War 1 air operations ever published.
