“World War I [1914-1918] brought about many significant changes in the aviation field. At the start of World War One, aircraft were very basic and crude. By the time World War One had ended, aircraft had become far more sophisticated and had differentiated into fighters, bombers and long-range bombers. The development of aircraft was stimulated by the war’s requirements, as was the way aircraft were actually used” (“Aircraft and World War One”). At the start of the war, aircraft was thought to be an insignificant asset. Because of this, planes were typically only used for monitoring, rather than attacking the enemy, as well as the world’s first ever aerial photography. If ever enemy aircraft came in contact, by chance, the encounter was typically crude due to lack of training, but deadly.

Many people, when they hear someone is from Germany or is German, assume that these people are or have relations to the Nazi Regime. But only a few know, that during the World War II (WWII), there were a few German non-violent resistance groups. These groups tried to “fight” the Nazis from within.
