    In the high noon of the Victorian age, some 40 years before the creation of the RAF, the detachment known as the Balloon School began its pioneering research not only into balloons but also into airships, kites and aircraft, developing the possibilities of each new form of aviation against a backdrop of great change in military design and thinking. In this thorough history of their exploits, Malcolm Hall documents the greatest successes and failures of the early aeronautical engineers.
