The story of early British military aviation is one of trial and error, of triumph and adversity and it all begins with a detachment of the Royal Engineers called the Air Battalion, which had previously been called the Balloon School. Malcolm Hall brings together a thoroughly researched history of military aviation in the pioneer years with a selection of images, some previously unpublished, showing the development of the flying machines, both lighter and heavier than air.
