The First World War introduced a new form of battleground: aerial conflict. New aircraft technology was quickly and relentlessly developed to produce machines capable of serving each country initially in reconnaissance missions (ideal in conditions of trench warfare) and later in fighter and bombing raids.

The air war threw up a new breed of fighter, and in general the Allied and Central Powers' governments proved quick in exploiting the successes of their airmen for propaganda purposes. The 'Red Baron', Manfred von Richthofen, scored the highest number of victories of the war, although Frenchman Rene Fonck was the highest scorer to survive the war. The Pioneering ‘ace,’ was Oswald Boelcke one of the first true fighter pilots of World War I and helped develop the fundamentals of aerial combat.
