world war 1 dogfightswhere did the term start
Hi CelineThe term Dogfight has been used for centuries to describe a skirmish/battle. Although the term gained popularity in WW2, its origin was in the latter stages of WW1.The first written reference to the well known phrase comes from a publication titled "Fly Papers" by A.E. Illington in 1919.Illington wrote"The battle develops into a ‘dog-fight’, small groups of machines engaging each other in a fight to the death."If you have any other queries or questions, please Hub me
