Description
As small as a fly or as big as an aircraft, Drones are changing the face of military warfare. Drones will be the first title available for young readers on this topical subject. Drones, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), have become an essential and controversial tool for the U.S. military. Capable of targeted killing, they can be as small as a fly or as large as an aircraft. They can be used to spy on a neighbor, to undergo long reconnaissance missions, or to bomb a military compound. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are changing the way wars are fought. Using fact boxes, diagrams, photographs, and specially commissioned, computer-generated color illustrations, DRONES is an exciting, accessible work about the latest in aviation technology.
