Part of the military documentary series examining each aspect of the armed forces. This volume looks at the history of the bomber aircraft, developed in the last years of the First World War and then perfected during the vast bombing raids of the Second World War. Early aviators chucked grenades from their open cockpits on the enemy below. Today's strategic bombers can deliver their multi-ton payloads with pinpoint accuracy from miles above the target. BOMBERS is an explosive tour through the history of these mighty airplanes.
