More > specific people and specific aircraft. I am more interested in the general picture of how flying evolved: I think the key years here are 1903-1912.

This represents an extremely rapid rate of development, especially since much of it was concentrated in the final five years from 1908 onwards. In the first half of the period covered here, the USA was the dominant nation in terms of flight. In the second half, it was France. In this book, I compare developments in both, with those in Britain.< Less
