Summary

Summary

From the early days of balloons and experimental flying machines, through two World Wars, and international incidents from the Cold War, the Falklands Campaign and beyond, this gigantic volume follows the development of the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force right up to the present day. An immensely readable text -- written by a World War II RAF airman -- is accompanied by an expansive collection of more than 600 photographs in both black-and-white and color, many of which have never before been seen in print. The photography depicts all the legendary aircraft and campaigns of the RAF, and helps create an absorbing volume of essential and exciting reading for all historians and aviation enthusiasts alike. A fitting tribute to the many gallant airmen who offered, and so often gave, their lives for their country.
