During the Great War at the Macedonian front (Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey) catalytic events took place and faded into obscurity. Each one shaped the progress of the Great War and changed the tides of history forever.
Tales of boldness and courage were recorded as legends among the first aviators of the warring parties . It is no coincidence that veterans that became adept in flying over the Greek skies and the theater of operations over the Aegean, were later called to back up the efforts of science in order to reach and expand the limits of technology and human physiology even further.
Aerial reconnaissance and observations, bombardments, “dog-fighting” and anti-naval warfare were few of the different roles that the competing aviators had to manage at the Macedonian front.
Fearless men, strangers – taken from the ends of the world
From one side: British, French, Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians, Serbs and Greeks, and on the other side: Germans, Turks, Bulgarians, Austro-Hungarians. They conquered the fear of the unknown – defying death, they flew with primitive flying machines made of cloth and wood. They fought over the skies of Macedonia & the Aegean. Some of them never to return home.
NEVER BEFORE SEEN DOCUMENTS
For the first time, unique facts come to the spotlight: official military documents, diplomatic correspondence, logbooks and rare photos. Unique evidence for five airports unknown to the general public, each with its own strategic value and history, played an important role turning the tides of the war and shaping the final outcome in this corner of the world map.
A BOLD IDENTITY
Signifies the historical importance of the events that transcribed during the first World War. Iconic typography and bold colors meld with a kinetic force to create a recognizable brand that is accessible and readable between digital and conventional mediums.
