From the grimly funny tale of the mis-design of a British World War I aeroplane whose gunner risked decapitation every time he turned to fire at the enemy, to the tragedy of the Anglo-American invasion of Sicily in 1943, this book presents a selection of blunders from the history of aerial warfare. The principal focus is on the post-1914 era, but the book also examines early abortive attempts at manned flight and the use of balloons in warfare.
