Dogfights

Dogfights have always attracted attention. Since the First World War, their participants have been considered heroes, stories have been written about nothing, and they have become idols of generations. However, the reality of air combat is much more prosaic.

This series deals with the struggle from their beginning to the modern age, when the sky is steadily ruled by jet engines.
