Dropping bombs from aircraft had little impact on the prosecution of the First World War, despite the rapidly developing technology, but by the outbreak of war in 1939 it had become a key component of military strategy. Former US Air Force pilot, Kenneth Werrell analyses the history of strategic bombing and assesses the tactical and technical developments, major deployments and aircraft, from the first German zeppelin attacks on Britain in 1915 to the long- range missiles of the modern age.
