    Description: The First World War demanded revolutionary technology to break the vicious stalemate in which the armies of Europe found themselves. One such technology was aerial reconnaissance and photography, which together with the growing intelligence use of phone tapping and radio intercepts, changed the nature of war forever.    Colonel Terry J. Finnegan’s Shooting the Front describes the evolution of aerial photography during the First World War, in a text packed with data, information and meticulous research from essential archives.  It shows not only how important aerial reconnaissance was to the war effort, but also how it became the foundation for modern-day exploitation of imagery and geospatial intelligence used to guide today’s decision makers on global issues, and shaped intelligence work for generations to come. Author: Terrence J. Finnegan ISBN: 9780752499543 Cover: Paperback
