about this item

For a hundred years the Royal Air Force has been at the forefront of the UK's defenses, protecting its allies, attacking its enemies, and, in the 1950s and 1960s, providing a key part of Britain's Nuclear Deterrent.

This book examines the history of the RAF from the biplanes of the First World War, through its finest hour in 1940, the dawn of the jet age, and up to today's hi-tech aircraft, including the emerging role of the unmanned aerial vehicle. Enriched with personal accounts and a wealth of photographs, this book provides a concise introduction to the world's first independent air force.
