January 2008 · The Journal of Military History. Although this book is not likely to appeal to a wide audience, but rather to a narrow public of air power scholars and aviation enthusiasts, it constitutes a welcomed addition to the body of World War I literature in English that all too often under-appreciates France's contributions to the war effort.

French Strategic and Tactical Bombardment Forces of World War I is a translation of René Martel's classic L'Aviation Francaise de Bombardement (Des Origines au 11 Novembre 1918), published in Paris in 1939. Martel's history is by far the most important description of World War I French bombing published in any language. This story of French bombardment―during the brief period when France was the world's greatest air power―is virtually unknown in the English-speaking world. France not only supplied aircraft to virtually every Allied power in the war, but by the end of the war her air force routinely conducted raids consisting of 100 to 150 bombers against German troop concentrations. These massive raids occurred at a time when the British and Americans had difficulty mustering as many as three-dozen bombers to send against one target.The pioneering French efforts in technology and tactics―many of which preceded the better-known British and American efforts―are covered, as well as the development of aerial bombs, bomb-dropping mechanisms, bombsights, intelligence-based targeting packages, formation flying, night flying and navigation, long range fighter escorts, and aerial photography for bomb damage assessment. A keen observer of personalities, Professor Martel describes with great feeling the pioneers who created this new brand of warfare: Happe, de Goÿs, the Féquant brothers, de Kérillis, Laurens, and Bouchet. Also included is his analysis of the successful German propaganda response to French strategic bombing, which is particularly insightful.Allen Suddaby's careful translation of this long out-of-print work is enhanced by his son Steven's recent scholarship on Great War bombing campaigns. The original 1939 text is supplemented with the results of 65 years of research since then and benefits from the knowledge of several experts in the field who were consulted in the course of preparing this edition.Downloadable Map of

I've been studying the French Service Aeronatique because of their use of American pilots and observers. The Americans were waiting for their own US Air Service to ramp up and many were still in training. The French were able to use these pilots and observers, sent to them in teams of two men, and gave many extensive training that they would use later in the American squadrons that they joined or re-joined. I am particularly interested in the bombers because my person of interest, 1st Lieutenant Gordon B Enders took his aviation training with the French and was able to fly in their bomber squadrons against enemy targets such as railroads, ammo dumps, and supply centers. Without this book, despite the indicated non-disclosures, I would know little or nothing of the French strategic bombing history, its squadrons and groups, its equipment and weaponry, or the mettle of its pilots, bombardiers, observers, or commanders. So for me this was a valuable addition to my little WW1 aviation library. The Suddaby's
have made a great contribution to our knowledge by editing and translating this work into English. Those of us who are getting our feet wet into WW1 in general and aviation history in particular owe them a vote of thanks. Need I say get this book?

This book gives an excellent overview of the French Air Services technical developments during world war one and to that extant is certainly valuable.
However the descriptions of the operational history of the air service is questionable at best. The reason for this is that the author relies completely on the official histories published by the French Air Service under government auspices. At the time this book was published most historical authors did not realize and, where they knew better, were unwilling to acknowledge that the official records had been heavily censored and rewritten as official policy of both the French and British military from the very beginning of the conflict.
Indeed, to this day many historians do not realize the extent to which the original officially compiled histories were deliberately distorted or suppressed.
Again as a technical reference this book is a welcome addition and is best when read as such.

Excellent book with a lot of nice detail.
