World War 1 set the stage for many of the conflicts of the 20th Century with the greatest of these becoming the Second World War. Beyond its tanks, artillery guns and firearms, the aircrat reigned supreme as many of the campaigns involved air supremacy as a key component to victory. The war did not dissappoint as many-a-development were introduced while other technologies were furthered. Before the end, radar, precision bombing and jet-powered flight would all become the norm for the decade that lay ahead - and the pending Cold War between the East and West.
