9781909808027: Observers and Navigators: And Other Non-Pilot Aircrew in the RFC, RNAS and RAF

This title first appeared in 2001 to universal acclaim, quickly went out of print and has remained so since. The author, meantime, has continued his research and the result is this updated edition, over half as long as the first, with stacks of new photographs. Absolutely essential reference for all those interested in military aviation.

About the Author:

'Jeff' Jefford joined the RAF in 1959. His flying experience included tours on Canberras with No 45 Squadron in Singapore, on Vulcans with Nos 83 and 50 Squadrons and as an air navigation instructor with No 6 FTS. His ground tours included administrative posts at Manby and Gatow (Berlin) and air staff duties at HQs Strike and Support Commands. He left the RAF to read history at London University (Royal Holloway), graduating with First Class Honours in 1994. Since then he has been a member of the Executive Committee of the RAF Historical Society and has been its editor since 2000. He has had a number of articles published under the Society's own imprint and in the prestigious Cross & Cockade Journal; he has three books to his credit.

Review:

"...tells the important story of the guys in the back. For years WWI aviation history researchers have focused on single seat fighter aces whose exploits brought medals, fame and perks never known by men in the trenches, and by flying men whose work did not bring the same opportunity for victory. Wing Commander Jefford has gone to considerable lengths to correct that historical oversight. (Over the Front)

Book Description Grub Street, 2014. Book Condition: New. During the First World War, observers and aerial gunners who flew with the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service were treated as somewhat inferior personnel to the pilots, establishing a systemic bias, CG Jefford argues, that continued for decades. This detailed analysis of non-pilot aircrew describes the role of observers, navigators and gunners and their ever-changing training and management through two world wars, the Cold War period and into the present century.
