Air Navigation 1940

"Air navigation is the art of conducting an aircraft from place to place by dead reckoning and fixing position by observations of terrestrial objects and celestial bodies." The first sentence in the book, which does not take account of weather, cloud, darkness or the opposition, but the bomber was always going to get through anyway! This is the state of that art in 1940, and the book is best read in conjunction with the later 1944 manual which is much more professional, although this book is very comprehensive and is of course valid today if you have the many instruments illustrated in the text.
