Gasbags, flying bombs and Cold War secrets. Joseph Montgolfier, even before a balloon had left the ground, had seen a potential use in his new invention of attacking the English at Gibraltar. The first 'air force' was founded by Napoleon and it was soon realised that the balloon had excellent potential for artillery spotting and reconnaissance. For the first time, all of the uses of balloons at war are contained in a single volume. 'Balloons at War' tells the story of balloons, both manned and unmanned, in the service of the armies and navies of the world.
