"The seven chapters trace the chronological development of air fighting in WW1 concentrating on what was written about the broad aims of the strategy and its effect on the land battle...The result is a useful round-up and analysis of practically everything which was written at the time on `air superiority' or `control of the air'."
- Sir Roger Austin, Afterburner Book Reviews
"...this book has much to recommend for a wide audience. It is an essential read for those who study the First World War and air power. It is also of significant interest to anyone who wishes to better understand the sacrifice and determination required to gain and maintain control of the air and the benefits that brings to our fighting forces and civilian population."
- Squadron Leader Phil Clare, Air Power Review, Vol. 21 No. 1
"James Pugh provides a concise and forceful addition to the literature, exploring airpower concepts that were theorized in peacetime and which were proven amid the sanguinary realities of the war."
- Nicholas Sambaluk, United States Air Force, Air Command and Staff College, Journal of Military History
"Pugh's study makes an original and significant contribution; it is absolutely essential reading for anyone wanting to write about the subject of military aviation in the First World War or the history of British Air Power"
- Michael Molkentin, University of New South Wales, Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research.
