Fighting Jets is a Time-Life aviation book included in the Epic of Flight series.

On August 27, 1939, just four days before the outbreak of WWII, a slender unconventional research airplane designated Heinkel 178, took off from Marienhe Airfield in Germany to make the first successful flight of a turbojet aircraft.

Fighting Jets

Although hardly noticed at the time, the event marked the dawn of a new age in aerial warfare. It was a revolution created basically by two men (Frank Whittle of Great Britain and Hans von Ohain of Germany).

The first fighting jets had little effect initially; their appearance set the stage for future generations of jet warplanes. Great Britain, the United States and Japan all developed and flew jet aircraft before the World War II ended.

Fighting Jets book is one volume included in the Time-Life Epic of Flight series.
