Aerial warfare is the use of military aircraft and other flying machines in warfare. Aerial warfare includes bombers attacking enemy installations or a concentration of enemy troops or strategic targets; fighter aircraft battling for control of airspace; attack aircraft engaging in close air support against ground targets; naval aviation flying against the sea and nearby land targets; gliders, helicopters, and other aircraft to carry airborne forces such as paratroopers; aerial refueling tankers to extend operation time or range; and military transport aircraft to move cargo and personnel.
Here is the remarkable yet true story of two brothers who joined the Army Air Corps during World War Two, remaining together throughout flight training and subsequent overseas duty. Inseparable, Junior, and Jack Batty shared a passion for adventure and flight. Wingtip to Wingtip chronicles their early lives and decided to join the Army, following them through their flight training, occupation duty, service during the Korean and Cold Wars, and beyond. Referencing and quoting directly from over 1,000 letters written during their years of service, one will come to know the Batty brothers on a deep, personal level and experience the human side of military service as well as the tragedy of war.
