Course Description

This course explores how the arrival of airplanes on the battlefield changed the very nature of warfare. With specific focus on the Luftwaffe, the Royal Air Force, and the United States Army Air Force during WWII, it covers the development of aviation and air power in the years leading up to the war and the greatest clash of machines in the history of armed combat. It also tells the tale of how each air force enjoyed its own "Finest Hour" - and how American industrial might brought victory, but only after an enormous cost in men and aircraft.
