War in the Air and Its Importance on the Outcome of the War
I think that the war in the air was in some ways important to the
outcome of the war and in some ways not.
There are three main factors in the war in the air and these are:
At first spying was said to be inefficient and not very important but
this soon changed later on in the war as an aerial camera was made.
The aerial camera was made in mid 1915 and aerial photography became
very important, mainly because they were used to spy for enemy
artillery so that the artillery wouldn't bomb the attacking forces
down. When they found the artillery it made it easy for the bombers to
bomb down safely without any losses.
Therefore in my conclusion on the importance of spying, I ...view middle of the document...
The German raids on
Britain were more effective and killed many more people. The number of
casualties then declined as their losses mounted and stopped
altogether after May 1918. Bombers were generally ineffective due to
the poor sights, engine problems and inexperienced pilots. The bomb
damage was very small and there was hardly a direct hit. The planes
were not advanced enough.
Due to the number of bombs dropped and homes destroyed people started
to get encouraged to sign up and fight back as they had lost their
homes. This is because they may feel their only chance is to join the
army. Some people though felt different and this was that their morale
was down and they began to get worried. They thought that they could
be bombed again.
My conclusion of bombing is that it was quite important but the planes
were not advanced enough and the pilots were not experienced enough.
Dogfights were mainly about domination of the air. The pilots that
took part in the dogfights were very young and generally had no
experience of flying. This meant the life expectancy went down.
Dogfights were between British planes and the German Zeppelin. I feel
in my conclusion that dogfights were not important at all o the
outcome of the war.
Finally, in my final conclusion, I feel that the war in the air was
important in some ways and not in others. The technology was poor and
the pilots had no experience whatsoever in fighting conditions in the
air. The planes were not advanced enough for bombing but were for
spying. The reconnaissance was good and the bombing was in some ways
but the dogfights were poor and with the British technology had no
chance against the Zeppelin.
