The Angel of the Revolution by George Griffith:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

In this mostly forgotten novel of the late nineteenth century, the Terror, a socialist and anarchist alliance, makes use of advanced flying ships like war-ballons and airships to make mincemeat of the existing world powers. This book contains many striking passages about the horrific nature of mechanized warfare decades before World War I. Select an invention:

Air-Ship (VTOL Airship)

Air-to-Surface Missile - first use of concept

War-Balloon (Navigable Aerostat)
