A lot of the airmen of the First Word War who tested both the adversary and also death did not survive. These are their tales.

In the clinging mud and also trench warfare of WWI, it was quickly clear that the cavalry– cream of the crop of the elite– would certainly be of little USAge.

The rushing males and also policemans of the mounties searched for a method to be front and facility in the problem, and also found it in the new air forces being established on both sides of the Western Front. Quickly lances as well as sabres were replaced by silk headscarfs as well as machine guns. Fight on horseback was replaced by dogfights airborne– individually and in wonderful flying developments– constantly between warriors. No modern technology changed much more in the 5 years of the war, and also none would certainly have a bigger impact.

From Great Britain to Canada to Australia and also New Zealand, new heroes took the honour and dash of the mounties to the air in flying devices– which would change the face of battle permanently.
