Sustaining Air Power : Royal Air Force Logistics Since 1918 - by Trevor Stone (Hardcover)
About this item
The Royal Air Force is the world’s oldest independent air arm, yet little has been written about its logistics. This groundbreaking book, which draws on twenty-five years of original archival research, opens the hangar door on this highly important discipline, which has been at the forefront of supporting British air power since 1918. Written by a former senior RAF Logistics Officer and supplemented by material from veterans and currently serving military personnel, Sustaining Air Power explores the fascinating development of RAF logistics. This journey, just short of a century, explores the inter-war years, the Second World War, the Cold War, and all major campaigns that the Service has been involved in, from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the RAF’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. Dedicated chapters consider the more specialist aspects of logistics, such as tactical and expeditionary logistics, fuels and explosives, information technology, and how the RAF has managed its extensive supply chain. Richly illustrated, with many previously unpublished images, its content and style will appeal to a wide readership.
