The halls of the Pentagon vary from the workman-like cold of a modern office building to a well-decorated collection of corridors that feature display cases and art highlighting American military history. The building is nothing short of a magnificent structure containing the artifacts and artworks, many unique items and works from history.
What sets apart the collection is that hanging in the corridors of the US Military’s headquarters are the original artworks themselves, not posters or reproductions. Many were created by famous men and women, sometimes they are the drawings and paintings of the not so famous men and women who may have created works based on personal experience at war.
These are the aviation-related artworks of Pentagon — a first volume that covers the history of aviation through the Korean War. A second volume will follow that highlights the works of the modern day.
