    Excerpt from The Type "M" Kite Balloon Handbook

    The value of balloons for Observation purposes in war fare has been recognized and utilized for many years. At first, the common spherical balloon was used and was controlled by means of a rope or cable connecting the bal loon with the ground. The first record we have of a bal loon being used in this manner dates back to 17 94 when the French Army used several of these balloons during the Revolution.

    Such balloons were known as captive balloons and were used intermittently during our Civil War, the Spanish American War, the franco-prussian War and the Boer War. On account of the spherical form the basket could not be held in any fixed position with regard to the wind. Because of the constant swinging they were ineffective and unsatisfactory and were never used to any great extent.
