Sophisticated aerial reconnaissance techniques were developed during the Second World War, allowing interpreters to view 'stereo' pairs of images from which they could accurately identify, and calculate the sizes of, objects on the ground. Featuring archive images and reconnaissance photographs, from Hitler's invasion barges in Boulogne to Hiroshima after the atomic strike, this illustrated history traces the development of aerial intelligence-gathering and describes the critical contribution of pilots and backroom analysts on both sides of the conflict. Slightly off-mint.
