    Vasco da Gama (1460 – 1524) räknas idag som en av vår tids stora upptäcktsresande. Som född in i en rik familj hade han redan från början stora krav på sig att följa i deras fotspår, men han valde istället att ta upp den sjöfarandes rastlösa livsföring. Mest berömd är han för att ha hittat sjövägen till Indien från Europa, något många trodde var omöjligt. Detta är den spännande berättelsen om hur Vasco da Gama trotsade en hel världs negativa inställning och gjorde det han var född till att göra: upptäcka världen.Sven Wikberg (1890-1959) var en svensk författare och historiker. Wikberg är främst känd för sina böcker om Gustav Vasa, men hade intressen och kunnande inom flera områden. Han har skrivit både fackböcker inom historia, men även romaner som utspelar sig i historisk tid.

Unlike ground soldiers they slept on clean beds, drank beer in local pubs, and danced to the swing music of the travelling Air Force bands. But they were also an elite group of fighters who put their lives on the line in the most dangerous role of all.Miller takes readers from the adrenaline filled battles in the sky, to the airbases across England, the German prison camps, and onto the ground to understand the devastation faced by civilians.Drawn from interviews, oral histories, and American, British and German archives, Masters of the Air is the authoritative, deeply moving and important account of the world's first and only bomber war.
