Every Saturday, over the next few weeks, we will be putting a three minute report, produced by our editorial team and entitled "Men and planes of the First World War" online. The First World War, which caused ten million victims over four years, led to the development of military aviation. Feel free to comment on these reports.
Today, July 28th., marks the centenary of the beginning of the First World War. The occasion for us to focus on military aviation during the conflict. In 1914, its role was relatively vague, but after only a short time several specialities began to appear : reconnaissance, observation, combat and bombardment.
