Abstract:

In the century following the Wright brothers' historic 1903 flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, thousands of military aircraft have been designed and hundreds of thousands have been produced. From that massive aeronautic pantheon, two well-known aviation historians have selected the one hundred most significant military aircraft for this centennial tribute. From the U.S. Army's purchase of the world's first military aircraft from the Wright Brothers through the bombers and fighters of the 2003 war in Iraq, this book provides an informative and fast-moving tour through a century of military aviation development.
