World War II was the first major aerial war in history. Aircraft fought on every front and played major roles in most battles. Especially in the Pacific, the airplane was king -- the side with better air power was the side that won, period. I have quite a large number of books that are about one facet or another of the air war. Not all of them can be neatly categorized as about one theater or the other; some deal with both.
