Pacific Warriors: From Hell to Victory
From the Red Baron to Top Gun-the 20th century was very much the age of the aviator. The introduction of an aerial dimension changed military conflict forever and restored a kind of knightly grace to the increasingly ugly spectacle of advanced warfare. While faceless constellations of men and machines slammed into each other on the sea and the ground, dogfighters faced off in the skies according to chivalric codes of their own. Marshalling an extraordinary array of historical materials, Wings of Destruction brings this fusion of old-fashioned heroism and ultra-modern technology dramatically to life. From bi-planes to bombers, from Germany to the Gulf, this 15-part saga will give you a co-pilot's view of the greatest air aces of all time!
