Part of the military documentary series examining each aspect of the armed forces. This volume looks at the history of the bomber aircraft, developed in the last years of the First World War and then perfected during the vast bombing raids of the Second World War. In Vietnam, the American air force used bombers in similarly vast numbers to lay waste to the jungles of South East Asia, and in the Gulf War bombers were used to deliver payloads with pinpoint accuracy. But this documentary questions whether the bomber still has a role in the military of the future.
