Photograph of British bomber aeroplane Handley Page

Description

During the course of the war, aeroplanes played a key military role, initially for observation purposes as was the case during the French Marne counter-offensive in September 1914. During the course of the war, bombing raids were conducted not only on military targets but also over major European cities by heavy bombers such as this Handley Page 0/100. Theorised by Air Marshall Giulio Douhet in the post-war years, this strategy led to the terror bombing operations of the Second World War.
