The idea of using an aircraft to attack ground forces had actually already been put into practice years before even the outbreak of the First World War. However, it was in the war torn skies of Europe between 1914 and 1918 that great advances in the science of bombing would take place. The First World War saw the use of both tactical and strategic bombing. Whilst air power theorists still argue over the exact definition, in broad terms tactical bombing is the direct attack of enemy units whereas strategic bombing is designed to attack the enemy’s industry, infrastructure and ability to wage war. Tragically, strategic bombing also covers the deliberate targeting of civilian populations.
For both strategic and tactical bombing, the principals of level bombing can be used.
