"For the historian," writes Boyne, "there is uncanny similarity in layout between the modern jet airliners and the first operational jet fighter, the Messerschmitt Me 262. The historian has to marvel how an instrument of war changed so rapidly into the truest instrument of peace, uniting the people of the world in a manner never before possible."
